The demand for a better thermal paste is really growing, since users want the best out of their systems and even a single degree drop in temperature can result in better performance and overclocking.So Gelid Solutions released a new thermal compound that will attract many buyers its high performance and low price.The new thermal paste is called GC-Extreme and is the high-end thermal paste from Gelid Solutions.
Let's have a look at its features and specifications!
All data is taken from Gelid Solutions website.
Let's have a closer look at Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme!
GC-Extreme has a transparent package with the main features of it in the front.
At the back we can see recommendations from various sites,and specifications.
GC-Extreme comes in a syringe with a lime green sticker along with a spreader.
We can see that GC-Extreme is grey, and is a bit thicker than AS5,it is also a bit sticky.
Let's see how it performs!
For testing thermal pastes I use steady thermal load in order to be as fair as possible and eliminate any chance for errors.
Testing methodology is described here.
I will compare Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme with the following pastes:
We can see that Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme clearly outperforms Arctic Ceramique and Arctic Silver 5, the two most commonly used thermal pastes, showing that Gelid Solutions has made a very dynamic entry at the thermal compound market.
It really impressed me that a not well known company made a thermal compound that performs better than Arctic SIlver 5,Shin Etsu X23 and Scythe ThermalElixer!
Also applying GC-Extreme was a piece of cake,it is not so thick like Arctic Ceramique and this makes the spreading with the included spreader very easy.
Also a big advantage of GC-Extreme is the price, with MSRP: USD 9.99 / Euro 6.99 is one of the cheapest high performance thermal pastes.
"Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme is an outsider that will shock many people with its performance and low price...If you are planning to purchace a new thermal paste GC-Extreme should definitelly be in your shortlist!"
