March last year Arctic introduces MX-5 thermal paste. According to the manufacturer, this thermal grease is characterized by high efficiency and can guarantee reliable heat dissipation for a long period of time.
The manufacturer said this week that its own quality control had identified “anomalies in consistency and shelf life” in some batches of MX-5. Substandard thermal paste is characterized by “excessive oil release”, which leads to premature hardening. The result can be “adverse effects and difficulty in application”.
As stated, the defective batches have already been identified and withdrawn from circulation, so they are no longer on sale. For those who have already bought poor quality thermal paste, a free replacement is offered. To take advantage of the offer, you must contact the manufacturer and provide proof of purchase via form on the site.
