EK Unveils the Indigo XS Ultra-Performance Engineered Thermal Interface

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana-based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the latest latest generation Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI) for Intel Core LGA-115x processors.

EK-TIM Indigo XS is the successor to EK-TIM Indigo Xtreme and represents the latest generation Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI). Fits neatly between a CPU lid and water block (or heat sink) to keep CPUs cooler. Unlike greases, metallic thermal interface pads or liquid metal alloys, Indigo XS is a self-contained and sealed structure, deploying a Phase Change Metallic Alloy (PCMA) which reflows and fills surface asperities on the CPU lid and heat sink. Indigo XS achieves high thermal performance through the optimized deployment of molten, oxide-free PCMA, thereby yielding low contact resistance and low bulk resistance. The resultant interfacial layer is void-free and robust, with low thermal contact and bulk resistance.

With a new alloy boasting a bulk thermal conductivity of 40 W/mK, Indigo XS performance is unmatched by any other TIM available today.

Key feature/benefits:
  • Bulk thermal conductivity 4-6X higher than best grease/paste TIMs
  • Compatible with all Intel 1150/1155/1156 CPUs, including Haswell
  • Optimized for watercooled systems
  • Highest thermal performance of any TIM, including Indigo Xtreme!
High Reliability:
  • Fully sealed structure - no mess or migration
  • Most consistent performance - applies the correct amount of alloy every time
  • Gallium-free
  • Laser-cut precision
User Friendly:
  • Fully compatible with copper and aluminum surfaces
  • Peel-and-stick application
  • Easy clean up - just peel to remove
Extent of delivery:
  • two (2) EK-TIM Indigo XS applicators
  • one (1) Indigo Xtreme Thermal Surface Cleaner
  • one (1) pair of powder-free nitrile gloves
  • cleanroom-grade dry wiper cloths
  • installation manual
Product is readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. EK-TIM Indigo XS is also available bundled with EK-Supremacy Elite - Intel 115x.

the thermal conductivity of this?

nice to see that they solved the mess may be :-P

So this is better than that liquid pro stuff everyone has been putting on their delidded dies?

$22 a purchase for two installations. If I were to get this I would not move my waterblock for a long time.

Isn't Coollaboratory Liquid Pro like 82 W/mK?
