The Arctic Cooling MX-4 was one of the best thermal pastes I have used in a long time. It wasn’t as thick as other thermal pastes but it gets the job just as well if not better. In the temperature tests I ran, I only saw a 3-6c difference in the pastes, which is not a lot but better than the competition. The Arctic Cooling MX-4 had much more paste inside the tube then most other company’s give you for the price.
The only real issue I had with this paste is that it dried a little quick for my liking.
A tube of MX-4 sells for $15.99 at my favorite online retailer. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Arctic Cooling Arctic MX-4 Thermal Paste a 9 out of 10 score.
– Performed better than the competition
– Quite a lot of paste in the tube
– Starts to dry pretty quick
