Be Quiet! Releases DC1 Thermal Paste

The new DC1 thermal compound is a material with a particular mix which allows for a very wide range of operating temperatures. The compound has a working temperature that ranges from -50 °C to 150 °C. The theoretical thermal conductivity of the material is 7.5 W/ mK, and according to be quiet!, this should give its new thermal paste a thermal advantage over cheaper, conventional materials.

The material's composition is 10 percent silicone compound, 60 percent metal oxide, and 30 percent zinc oxide compounds.

The DC1 thermal paste comes in a tube syringe and carries 3 grams of material. Included with it is a small spatula so that users can spread the compound evenly if they believe that this is an effective method.

be quiet!'s DC1 thermal compound is already in stores for a price of €6.49.

    I realize the article is just quoting, but since when is Zinc no longer considered a metal? Would like to know just what "metal" it is.

    to be honest there isnt much difference between most thermal pastes out there. maybe 1-3c but generally not that much

    They also make cpu coolers, why is making thermal paste so surprising?
