    Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the cutting-edge "GC-Extreme" thermal compound with a net content of 10g. It contains the same material as the multi-winning "GC-Extreme 3.5g" and varies in net content only.

    In comparison to the other compounds in the market the "GCExtreme" breaks all records and is most suitable for overclocking. Ultimate heat conductivity makes the "GC-Extreme" the leader of all thermal compounds. As with the other compounds of GELID Solutions the "GC-Extreme" is non-electrical conductive, non-corrosive, no bleeding and non-curing. The "GC-Extreme 10g" comes with a GELID applicator which enables an easier application. As a product of the GAMER product line the "GC-Extreme" contains 10g.

    Beside the "GC-Extreme 10g" GELID Solutions introduces the "GC-Supreme" for professional users. The "GC-Supreme" is made from the purest thermal conducting materials and offers superb thermal conduction. Thanks to nano scale produced new ultra-fine molecular structure the "GC-Supreme" fills spaces more effectively than conventional materials. In comparison to other thermal compounds the "GCSupreme" provides an easier application especially with the GELID applicator. Coupled with excellent thermal conductivity for an attractive price this thermal compound makes the best choice for professionals. As a product of the SILENT product line the "GC-Supreme" contains 7g.

    The "GC-Extreme 10g" and "GC-Supreme" thermal compounds are available now for a MSRP of USD 25.99 / EUR 19.99 and USD 7.2 / EUR 5.7.

    Clearly you haven't tried it.
    It does not turn into glue and it's some of the better TIM I've used, but hey, whatever, you stick with what you like and I'll stick with what I like, fair enough?

    GC-extreme is very well regarded, especially with the subzero crowd. Good replacement for OCZ freeze and much more consistent. Not sure I'd want to scoop it out of a container though.

    Do not adjust your display properties, the label really is that shade of green unsuitable for human eyesight.

    I'm still using Arctic Silver 5. Are there significantly better options available now? :confused:

    Significantly better... not really. Significantly cheaper for the same performance. Yes

    Not that ive found. using both the MX-2 and AS5 for my hardware. one is the most comfy to apply and the other is simply the best performer out there after a week of use

    3-5 degrees is significantly better in the world of good thermal compounds I think...;) See for yourself. But price matters also and until your compound is finished I don't think you should bother at all.

    have been waiting for GC-Ultimate for a long time, GC-Extreme is currently one of the best compounds for sub-zero.

    Anyone tried Indigo extreme with sub zero temps? It works great at normal application temp but requires special installation.

    why is there no proper TIM reviews? :(
    ive checked a couple and the differences between them are insane...
    some test with artificial heat load testers, some with actual cpus, some with gpus, some test in a heat chamber, some at ambient temp with huge variations and then show delta to ambient temp but thats still flawed...

    its even hard to spot general trends among all those reviews and roundups, some have A come out way ahead of B, some have it the other way around... :/
    I guess it doesnt help that there seem to be HUGE variations in TIM quality from a couple of vendors...
    that in itself would be worth an article/review, buying different batches of time from different places and checking how much they vary...

    would be cool if somebody could come up with a proper TIM roundup, compared them all the same way, within a few days or weeks, ideally with an actual CPU at stock and then overclocked. subzero tests would be the cherry on top of the cream, but hey now im really asking for too much, i know :p

    It takes too much time and effort. It's just not worth it for something so cheap.
