- The ARCTIC MX-4 is a premium-grade thermal paste with exceptional performance and ease of application. It is an electrically non-conductive paste that is applied between CPU/GPU and designated coolers to transfer the dissipated heat from the components to the heat sink. Since the ARCTIC MX-4 is a metal-free compound, it eliminates the risks of causing short circuit and in turn adding more protection to your computer.
- The new formula in the ARCTIC MX-4 features optimal thermal conductivity and low thermal resistance. These characteristics effectively dissipate the emitted heat from the core components.
- The consistency of the ARCTIC MX-4 is designed for simple application. Its texture is just thin enough to spread onto components using fingers without creating much mess.

This is the best non-electrically conductive, ambient temp paste on the market for many years now. It's guaranteed by the manufacturer to not require reapplying for 8 years, and I've seen anecdotal results of people finding it still hasn't dried up after more than 8 years. Track record matters with paste.
It also comes in larger quantities, so if you're building a lot of systems you can get a lot of it and save some money. MX2 is just as good and has even larger tubes available. See my photos for the best way to apply paste on a Ryzen CPU, you want it that way due to how the cores are oriented under the heatspreader and to prevent air bubbles.

I just bought it in case I had any trouble with the cooler installation. Used it to replace the paste on my older pc.

I can't really do any side-by-side comparisons of thermal paste myself, but this stuff is at the top of a lot of shootouts. At this price, can't complain.

from completed build Relatively Mean Xeon Machine
Compound: MX4 has been shown to outperform Arctic Silver and I really didn't want the abrasive factor of IC Diamond. I probably put a little too much thought into choosing a thermal compound but with temps not exceeding low 40's I'm happy. Although, one thing I have heard is that MX4 may not age so well, which I'll have to keep an eye out for.
