Arctic Cooling MX-2 High Performance Thermal Compound Review

» Discuss this article (6)


Be sure that you correctly apply the MX-2 compound, because if you don’t, your results won’t nearly be as good as if you apply it correctly. First, remove your current heatsink from your processor. It is best to use 90% rubbing alcohol on the processor and heatsink to completely clean it of the old thermal compound. Once the processor and heatsink are clean, apply about a dime’s size of MX-2, in the center of the CPU. Place your heatsink back onto your processor and rotate it about ten degrees to either side to insure that no air is between the processor and heatsink. Now, securely lock your CPU cooler into place and fire up your machine! Below you can see the MX-2 applied on an AMD 6000+ with an Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 64 heatsink.
