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
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.
Conclusion: Comportamentul pe o perioadă lungă de timp (+1an) este probabil singurul lucru pe care nu l-am putut realiza din motive evidente așa că nu se poate presupune care este curba de deteriorare. Prețurile la comercianții varianză între 28 lei și 39 lei, media de 35 lei aducând MX-4 în zona pastelor termoconductoare scumpe. Raportul preț / performanțe este însă unul excelent iar cantitatea de 4 grame chiar dacă pare mică, este suficientă pentru cel puțin 5 aplicări.
Pros: Performanțe foarte bune, Aplicare ușoară, Raport preț / calitate bun
Summary: Die neue MX-4 ist zu Recht unsere neue Referenz-Wärmeleitpaste. Leistung, Menge und Handhabung sind unschlagbar. Selbst am (günstigen) Preis gibt es nichts zu meckern. Was möchte man mehr?
Christoph meint: Ganz klar die Nummer 1 unter den Wärmeleitpasten!
Pros: spitzen Leistung, üppiger Inhalt, lässt sich gut verteilen/verstreichen, Haltbarkeit, fairer Preis
Cons: kein Kunststoffplättchen im Lieferumfang enthalten (erleichtert das Verstreichen der WLP)
