Thermal paste (also known as thermal grease) is a viscous substance which is used to increase the thermal conductivity by compensating for the irregular surfaces of the components. Every CPU cooler we integrate into our systems come with standard thermal paste that will help lower the temperature of your CPU, and therefore increase performance and the lifetime of your PC.
For our overclocked configurations, we also offer an upgrade option to better thermal paste options, which use different compounds such as carbon microparticles. These thermal pastes increase the thermal conductivity even further and can result in your computer running between 2.5°C and 7°C cooler.
