High Performance Thermal Compound for the Enthusiast

MX-2 is a high thermal conductivity and low thermal resistance compound for components that require optimum thermal dissipation. It is ideally suited for use in CPU, GPU cooling and other applications between power semiconductor components and heat sinks where thermal conductivity is a major factor.

Main Features

  • High Thermal Conductivity
  • Low Thermal Resistance
  • Non-Electrical Conductive
  • Non-Capacitive
  • Non-Curing
  • Non-Corrosive
  • No Bleeding
  • Odorless

Safe to apply anywhere
Since the MX-2 does not contain any metal particles, there are no problems regarding electrical conductivity or capacitance. Unlike other silver and copper compounds, MX-2 ensures that contact to electrical traces, pins and leads cannot result in any damage.

With MX-2 no curing and no bleeding of the compound are possible. In contrast to other products, this compound does not show decreasing performance over time, does not need to be reapplied and has a durability of at least 8 years.

It’s clear that ARCTIC COOLING dominates the market of thermal compounds. Besides the outstanding performance of the ARCTIC MX-3, its predecessor, the ARCTIC MX-2 can still keep up with the latest compounds and offers an excellent price/performance ratio.

Overclock Team Holland: ARCTIC MX-2
The ARCTIC MX-2 has a large capacity and the top performance of the MX-3. I give 4.5 starts to the ARCTIC MX-2.

PC-Experience : ARCTIC MX-2
What applies to the new MX-3 also is true for the slightly older MX-2. The MX-2 again could put itself in front with it's superior Price/Performance Ratio, specially since the performance is not much worse than the MX-3. Conclusion: Extremely good Price/Performance ratio, very profitable, good applyable and outstanding results.

PC Games Hardware : MX-2
MX-2 has become a securely established name in the Market of Thermal compounds but still can catch up with recent newcomers without any problems. Keeping the low price in mind the performance is even more convincing, since none of the slightly better compounds brought such a good price/performance ratio as the MX-2.

Empfehlung der Redaktion
Gute Kühlleistung bieten viele Pasten, doch die Mx-2 ist überdies sehr günstig: Für etwa drei Euro erhalten Sie vier Gramm, die bei sparsamer Dosierung für 30 Anwendungen reichen. Bastler treffen damit also eine gute Wahl, zumal sich die MX-2 leicht verteilen lässt.

We've been using the Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste here at BCCHardware for a while now, and I've always been very happy with its performance. Arctic Cooling is known as a top name in the cooling market, and their MX-2 thermal paste is no exception. This thermal paste is very widely available, and chances are good that your favorite computer shop or online store has this in stock. At the end of the day, I can easily recommend this product, and if you're looking for some great thermal paste, Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste deserves your consideration

We are coming to the conclusion, Arctic Cooling MX-2 is appointed as Grand Prize winner. [...] For the positive points, the excellent performances conquered us. The capacity of the syringe is very appreciable, it makes it possible to apply on approximately 15 Athlon 64 processors and twice more Athlon XP. Also, MX-2 has an excellent lifespan for at least 8 years, even it is advised to change thermal paste every year

Arctic Cooling�G¾¦s MX-2 thermal paste brings it performance up to par with other competitors in the market. More benefit from this paste might have been seen with a regular air cooler.

With MX-2, Arctic Cooling definitely shows that it will be an important player in the field of thermal pastes. The performance over MX-1 is improved and Arctic Silver 5 performance is reached. It is exciting to see a non-metallic paste showing better performance than metal based ones. With all its qualities, MX-2 is easily recommended for buying.

Hardware Canuck: MX-2
Without a doubt, I�G¾¦m totally satisfied with this product. There are so many things to like about this product and to tell you the truth, I�G¾¦m really having a hard time thinking of any negative points. Its performance was at the top in every test while its easy of use in terms of spreadability was second to none and (unlike some competitors) it is not electrically conductive. The real icing on the cake is the fact that Arctic Cooling gives you more thermal compound (4 grams to be exact) than its competitors while maintaining a lower price than most of the other compounds on the market. It doesn't get any better than this folks!

Arctic Cooling proved that one should take the choice of the thermal paste seriously especially if one plans to overclock. MX-2 is now the undisputed leader in our list of thermal pastes with the highest heat removal characteristics.We strongly recommend you to use MX-2 no matter what computer user class you belong to. Effective cooling is the guarantee of stable and long time work of the CPU whether you overclock it or not.

DragonSteelMods: MX-2
Not o­nly is the Arctic Cooling MX-2 thermal compound better performing that AS5, it also has the added features of not being conductive. The MX-2 does that in that it is non-conductive so there are no worries of accidentally hitting a trace circuit and shorting your system or worse.
  08 / 2007
RexWare: MX-2
Arctic Cooling proposes us a very good thermal compound, better than the competitors of our review. The best point is its life durability: 8 years.

Ultimate PC: MX-2
Overall I would say that this MX-2 is a must buy. As it is so easy to apply, it saves a lot of hassle. Being non-conductive is a great bonus as it does save your electrical components from death if you did accidentally drop some paste o­nto it. It cooled quite well, especially compared with the AS5 which is o­ne of the most well known thermal compounds available.

Arctic Cooling hat hervorragende Arbeit geleistet. Die MX-2 leitet die Wärme nicht nur optimal an den Kühlkörper, sie lässt sich auch noch wunderbar verteilen und einfach entfernen.[...] Auch wenn wohl niemand mehr erwartet hat das nach der Arctic Silver V noch einmal wirklich eine Verbesserung kommt, die MX-2 hat es geschafft und verdient sich unseren Award in Gold.

Its performances are very interesting within the framework of our tests. It is the dream, well-sure; no harmful effect is to be regretted, even with the Turbo Module installed. o­n this last our matter will be measured more, its effectiveness is quite real and undeniable.
