Well Proven Quality

The design of our thermal paste packagings has changed several times over the years.
The formula of the composition has remained unchanged, so our MX pastes have stood for high performance and quality for years.

Excellent Results even at Low Pressure

"Completely blew away
our expectations"

"The best thermal
Compound in the test"

"Wins in performance
price and usability"

Enthusiasts trust MX-2


Optimised Packaging Saves Resources

A sustainable use of resources is really important for us at ARCTIC Thus we updated the packaging of the MX-2 to minimize it's CO2 Footprint.

The practical, recyclable packaging bag of our thermal compound helps us to reduce the environmental impact of packaging materials by about 40% and thereby save resources.

Easy to Apply

With an ideal consistency, the MX-2 is very easy to use, even for beginners. The possibilities for its application and the most effectively way to avoid voids between CPU and cooler we show you in the video.

Excellent Performance

The ARCTIC MX-2 compound is composed of carbon micro-particles which lead to an extremely high thermal conductivity. It guarantees that heat generated from the CPU or GPU is dissipated quickly and efficiently, even suitable for overclocking. Superb in performance, MX-2 ranks among the top thermal compound, thermal paste or thermal grease in the market.

Safe Application

It does not contain any metallic particles so electrical conductivity would not be an issue. Unlike silver and copper compound, it ensures that contact with any electrical pins would not result in damage of any sort.

High Durability

In contrast to metal and silicon thermal compound, the performance of MX-2 does not compromise over time. Once applied, you do not need to apply it a second time as it will last over 8 years.

Value for Money

A high performance thermal compound perfect for system builders, there's no surprise that the MX-2 exceeds your expectations for its low price tag.

"Wins in performance, price and useability"
The MX-2 was the most viscous out of the bunch and was very easy to spread. The MX-2 wins against the Ceramique and Arctic Silver in performance, in price and in useability.
Out of the roundup test, MX-2 was rated among the top performers but was a clear winner when the price came into the picture. MX-2 offers most value for money and is easy to apply.
While stock paste gives 95° C, Arctic Silver 5 reduces the temperature to 91° C and the MX-2 brought it all the way down to 89° C (6c difference from stock paste).

The temperature reducing benefits of ARCTIC´s MX-2 Thermal Compound are clear to see, whether we compare it to the standard Intel thermal material or more expensive CoolerMaster paste.
I know we'll be using MX-2 for a long time to come since it completely blew away our expectations. Without a doubt, I'm totally satisfied with this product. There are so many things to like about this product. Its performance was... [more]

MX-2 is very impressive as the paste was able to outperform Noctuas NT-H1, a highly reputable product.
Verdis Reviews
The quantity and price is definitely the real strength of the MX-2. A tube of 65g is about 25 euro, equivalent to a value of 0.38 euro per gram which is very competitive. We give it the "Editors Choice Award" and the "Nice... [more]

After the roundup among 17 thermal compounds, we confidently crown the ARCTIC MX-2 with performance award. It is with both very easy application and very high efficiency.
The MX2 and MX4 were the winners in the test comparing with other thermal compounds. Its superior cooling efficiency, ease of application and 8-years longevity speaks for itself.With lower price, the MX-2 looks even more attractive to buy.
"Top Performer with Best Price"
I've always been very happy with MX-2's performance. At the end of the day, I can easily recommend this product, and if you're looking for some great thermal paste, ARCTIC MX-2 thermal paste deserves your consideration. Pros:... [more]

"I would definitely recommend ARCTIC MX-2 which offers a very nice price/performance ratio, and it may be even better to have it in every store."

"It is very easy to spread on the CPU"
MX-2 is easy to apply, it leads among the rest (e.g. GlacialStars Ice Therm I, Deep Cool Z9, Titan Nano Grease, Alsil-3)by keeping the temperature at around 70C for first 20 minutes.
MX-2 is a much better solution for overclockers who want to extend the longevity of hardware. With its high thermal conductivity and viscosity, I need to say MX-2 is much more useful than other thermal compound.
Dark Hardware
Given the choice however between ARCTIC MX-2 and Arctic Silver 5, I would go for MX-2 every time, but namely because it has maximum performance from the get go. The test has shown it to be much more capable and able to keep up with the... [more]
Xtreme Computing
The MX-2 was the most viscous out of the bunch and was very easy to spread. The MX-2 wins against the Ceramique and Arctic Silver in performance, in price and in useability.
I would highly recommend the MX-2 if you want something that goes on easy, works great, lasts long and comes in a very big syringe. You seriously don't have anything to lose here.

"MX-2 is much more useful than other thermal compound"
The MX-2 von ARCTIC could run at the top of the test field. For the first place, ARCTIC receives from us the Gold Award.
