Arctic Cooling Release the 2nd generation their High Performance Thermal Compound

The Swiss cooling solution provider – ARCTIC COOLING has launched a new high performance thermal compound MX-2 for the enthusiast. MX-2 is a high conductive and low resistance compound for components that require the best thermal dissipation. MX-2 is ideally suited for use in CPU, GPU cooling and other applications between power semiconductor components and heat sinks where high thermal conductivity is critical.

Since the MX-2 compound does not contain any metal particles, there are no problems regarding electrical conductivity and capacitance. In contrast to silver and copper compounds, contact with electrical traces, pins, and leads cannot result in any damage. Curing and bleeding of the compound is not possible. In contrast to metal or silicon pastes, this compound does not show decreasing performance over time, does not need to be reapplied and has a durability of at least 8 years.

“We’re highly impressed for its outstanding performance,” said Patrick Chung, marketing manager of ARCTIC COOLING. “MX-2 outperforms in almost all tests. It’s definitely one of the best non-electric conductive thermal compounds available for all DIY enthusiasts.”

MX-2 will be available by the end of July 2007. The MSRP is USD 7.95 and Euro 5.95 (excl VAT).

Okay,new Score
ran the maxcore at 660 and ramcore at 1970,and hit a 11804,when i O.C the card to 670/1980 it froze...would anyone Know why, is this basically as Much as the card could O.C to??
anyways might do another run, this time O.C the cpu to 3 ghz and under the same settings 660/1970

Nice mate I saw, good job :D

Nice mate I saw, good job :D

thanks mate, im always looking to Get more, if you got any tips, fire away:cool:
im deffinately looking to O.C the CPU more its at 3ghz maybe 3.6 ghz might be around the corner

Aye well 3.3 is a good target then it's all a bonus from there tbh

Tips = disable anything you have running in the background, including shutting down explorer when the benchie is running

so while bench is running , CNTRL ALT DEL then the panel will come up and il shutdown explorer, and click back on 3dmark06???
i use to think anytime u did shutdown explorer it wuld shut the Whole computer down hehe...
