Noctua NT-H2 Pro-Grade Thermal Compound Paste
  • This works very well and the laptops are running cool.
  • It's high quality thermal paste.
  • This stuff is amazing and great for the price.
  • This is the third paste I've used on my i9-9900k with a 280mm AIO and the results are fantastic.
  • Not for laptops. This paste is not for laptops, its way to runny and wet.
ARCTIC MX-4 Thermal Paste
  • This stuff has excellent thermal conductivity and lasts much longer than other pastes!
  • Extremely efficient heat transfer and is non-conductive.
  • Easy to apply with very good heat conductivity.
  • More easier to apply due to lower viscosity and gives good results without having to wait for it set.
  • I used the supplied paste and the temps were great, never going over 76C with all cores at 4.1GHz.
