Dutch manufacturer X2 joins the race with thermal compounds.
X2 has made a new thermal interface material: the X2 Thermica.
The grease is built to be usable with both CPUs and GPUs, and is said to be suitable for high-wattage processors. It can be used with both air cooling as well as water cooling blocks.
Technical specifications include a >5W/m-K thermal conductivity, which is managed with an ingredient ratio of 10 percent silicon compounds, 45 percent carbon compounds, as well as 45 percent metal oxide compounds. It is also a higher-viscosity substance, making it harder to accidentally get messy.
X2 will ship the product in a single syringe, which will contain half a gram of TIM, written to be good for two processor installations. MSRP pricing is set at $6.99 for the US.
