MX-5: Arctic launches its new non-conductive thermal paste!

After Thermalright and its new ITX heatsink, let’s stay in the world of cooling, but let’s move on to thermal paste. Indeed, Arctic launches its new paste on the market, which is none other than the MX-5. A new reference that claims to be non-conductive!

MX-5: the new non-conductive thermal paste by Arctic!

Arctic MX-5

With its new reference, the Swiss brand offers a variety of packaging options. Indeed, it will be available in syringes ranging from 2 g to 50 g with intermediate weights of 4 g, 8 g and 20 g. The same goes for the spatula, available in 2 g, 4 g and 8 g packaging.

As for the other pastes of the brand, this new version is not based on metal oxides or liquid metal. This makes it non-conductive and non-capacitive. So there will be no risk of short circuits if a small amount overflows and comes into contact with capacitors placed around a GPU/CPU for example.

Finally, we finish with some figures like the viscosity announced at 550 poise or the density which is 3.2 g/cm3. This paste will be suitable for use below 0°C, Arctic announcing a temperature range of -40°C to +180°C. Unfortunately, no idea about its thermal conductivity, as this value has not been communicated. On this subject, the MX-4 displays 8.5 W/mk.

For the price, these range from 7.49€ for the 2 g without spatulas to 36.99€ without the Nutella tart. With the spatula, the price increases slightly: from 8.99€ to 12.99€ for the 8 g. Finally, the brand announces a long durability of 8 years!
