be quiet! is known for its power supplies, and thus it is surprising to see it enter the market for thermal compound.
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.
