Arctic Cooling MX2 Thermal Compound
Posted by newsbot on August 13th 2007

For those of you who donít know what a thermal compound does allow me to explain. Its job is to transfer heat as efficiently as possible between a heatsink and a processor (or any other such similar setup). Without a thermal compound in place CPUs would overheat, as there are far too many micro imperfections in the base of a heatsink (and top of a CPU) to be able to effectively transfer heat (not to mention that air trapped between the two would hinder this already poor performance).
