Why is the Arctic MX-5 thermal paste so impressive

This is the latest paste from Arctic, who are fairly well-renowned as one of the better creators of this kind of product.

The MX-5 looks set to build on the already impressive previous versions of the paste and allow for more efficient cooling, and it continues the tradition of only needing to be applied every eight years, which is an incredibly long time.

As it stands, the details aside from these are fairly thin on the ground, but it's undoubtedly going to be a great paste to use on your PC, and given the legacy of the company, should be of the highest quality too.
