Conclusion: Final Thoughts Arctic have always been a contender in the thermal paste war and with a tried and tested method, it was only natural that MX-4 was going to follow suit and give us some results worth smiling at. The main selling points of the MX-4 thermal paste is how easy it is to spread, even though Arctic’s instructions are to use the CPU cooler to help spread it, some people may have a different preference when it comes to application.
Conclusion: In the world of thermal matters, one degree can make or break a system. You’ve got plenty of choices when it comes to thermal compounds these days and you want the one that’s going to give you best results and I think that’s ARCTIC MX-4. Yes it’s only one degree, in the end I don’t think you could go wrong with either of these thermal compounds really. The ARCTIC MX-4 and the Noctua NT-H1 are very much evenly matched honestly.
The Arctic Cooling MX-4 was one of the best thermal pastes I have used in a long time. It wasn’t as thick as other thermal pastes but it gets the job just as well if not better. In the temperature tests I ran, I only saw a 3-6c difference in the pastes, which is not a lot but better than the competition. The Arctic Cooling MX-4 had much more paste inside the tube then most other company’s give you for the price.
Pros: Price, Performed better than the competition, Quite a lot of paste in the tube
Summary: The MX-4 thermal compound from ARCTIC COOLING is their latest product released to the masses, in this article it is compared to MX-3 and MX-2. The MX-4 claims to improve performance, easier to apply and retains a good price/performance balance. Time to put their claims to the test.
Conclusion: A good thermal paste is something everyone should have in their system. Well-made pastes last years, retain their performance and can help in maintaining a cool running, quieter system. MX-4 meets all these requirements and with its industry leading performance should be at the top of everyones shopping list when it comes to a system build.
Excerpt: Arctic Cooling’s MX-3 thermal paste is currently one of the best on the market and is favoured by many enthusiasts as it performs very well and is non-conductive. In fact, KitGuru uses MX-3 to test most of the CPU coolers that pass through our labs.
