Gelid GC1 Thermal Compound Review

» Discuss this article (0)


To properly test the Gelid GC1 Thermal Compound, I will need to record temperatures during both idle time (little to no CPU usage), as well as during a full load (100% CPU usage). I will be using SpeedFan 4.33 to gather the temperatures of the CPU cores. I will be using OCCT:PK to simulate a full load, and will be running it for 30 minutes. I will let the computer sit and cool down for a 30 minutes before recording the idle temperatures. I will be testing the processor at stock speeds with stock voltage settings, as well as overclocked speeds of 3.6GHz with the voltage increased to 1.51 volts.  

Testing Setup:

  • Processor: Intel E6600 (stock & 3.6GHz)
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6
  • Memory: Mushkin PC2-6400 2x2GB
  • Video Card: Sapphire HD3850
  • Power Supply: OCZ 700W GameXStream
  • Hard Drive: Western Digital 320GB 16MB Cache SATA
  • Optical Drive: Lite-On DVD-RW
  • Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 1000
  • OS: Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Heatsink: Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
  • Ambient Temperature: 22.9 degrees Celsius


Comparison Heatsinks:

  • Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 3
  • Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 5
