What heat conducting materials do we offer and how do they differ?

ARCTIC primarily offers two types of thermal interfaces: thermal paste and thermal pads. Paste usually performs better when it comes to thermal transfer, but due to its consistency can sometimes be an obstacle for beginners. A modification is the thermal adhesive of our graphics card cooler. When applied, it behaves similarly to the paste, but when dried it creates a rather permanent connection and is no longer that easy to remove. Thermal pads do not have quite as good conductive properties as pastes, but they can be cut to size and shape, making them easier to use, especially for beginners.
