Scythe announces its new Thermal Elixer G Thermal Compound

Scythe has just launched a new thermal paste called "Thermal Elixer G". This next generation thermal compound from the Scythe uses a proprietary formula that's designed to deliver "superior performance and long-term stability."

With an MSRP of $15 in the US for a 3.5g syringe of their Thermal Elixer G compound. This value prices it competitively with other high-end thermal interface materials. That said, it remains to be seen how it Scythe's new Elixer formula compares to other brands.

Scythe New Thermal Elixer G Thermal Paste promises

Thermal Elixer G is a non-corrosive, non-electrically-conductive thermal compound. These properties all Thermal Elixer G to be used on CPUs and GPUs without presenting risks to your hardware. Scythe estimates that an application of their thermal compound will withstand at least five years of use when used on a CPU.

Below are Scythe's specifications for their Thermal Elixer G thermal compound.

The difference between high end paste from the likes of Noctua and Arctic, show a 1-2C difference overall. Nothing special, just take whatever is available to you. Just plain and dumb marketing with ”superior performance”.Quote

You have a point, but remember 11th and 12th Gen are winter cookers, every little increase in thermal conductivity is greatly appreciated provided that the price is right. I would take the best performer any day of the week even if its a 1C improvementQuote

Exactly. No-one needs a custom loop for their PC as all of the hardware will work air-cooled but even a few degree difference can mean your GPU going a bin higher etc.Quote
