MAINGEAR, an award-winning custom PC builder offering custom desktops, custom notebooks, pc and workstations, is excited to announce their next innovation from MAINGEAR EPIC Labs; the MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 CPU thermal solution for their entire desktop lineup. The MAINGEAR EPIC T100 is an ultra-high performing phase change metal alloy thermal interface material (TIM) offering the most effective solution to transfer heat from the CPU to the heatsink with high bulk conductivity. The MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 deploys into all the surface micro-asperities on the CPU lid and heat sink in a way that traditional paste solutions simply cannot. The MAINGEAR T1000 is perfect for those who overclock their PCs and want immediate maximum thermal conductivity without waiting for the traditional curing times found in other solutions on the market today. This allows MAINGEAR and enthusiasts alike to reach the most extreme overclocking limits quickly and cut off precious extra degrees, resulting in a more stable system. Key features highlighted below: Maximizing Performance The MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 has outstanding thermal conductivity-as much as 3 times better than the best silver-filled greases. The EPIC T1000 is unmatched by any other materials except solders, and unlike solders, the EPIC T1000 can be used between materials without matching Coefficients of Thermal Expansion (CTEs) such as between silicon dies and metal heat sinks. With the big reduction in thermal resistance EPIC T1000 provides, the demands on heat sinks and fans are relaxed, leading to many desirable results: decreased costs, quieter operation, and form-factor reductions. Minimal Noise The MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 also addresses a key emerging issue in the electronics industry-acoustics. For comfort in the home, and for safety in the workplace, the trend of increasing fan noise must be reversed. The EPIC T1000, by increasing the performance and efficiency of heat sinks reduces the need for enhanced airflow. Consistent Performance The MAINGEAR T1000 is a unique, effective solution that offers an easier, faster and more consistent way for PC performance not to be hindered by potential issues from heat generated by their CPU. Because the EPIC T1000 is a truly engineered solution you can be guaranteed consistent, repeatable performance with each application - there is no risk of over or under applying. This solution offers the use of the complete CPU lid surface for heat dissipation with a unique phase changing metal alloy thermal interface material. The MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 will be available for the following socket solutions at the price point listed: - Intel Socket 1155/1156 - $19.99 - Intel Socket 2011 - $29.99 - AMD - all open lid - $19.99 The EPIC T1000 will be available for purchase on www.maingear.com as a part of their full integrated systems as well as individually with other online retail stores such as: Amazon, FrozenCPU and Performance PCS. "The MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 is a powerhouse TIM that should be included in any high performance system build." Said Mark Frig, CEO of Frozen CPU. "FrozenCPU carries the highest performing enthusiast components for the DIY PC market and we're happy to include the MAINGEAR EPIC T1000 amongst our stable of products." "The EPIC T1000 when combined with the EPIC 180 is a potent combination. We found that it gave us quite a boost in terms of stability and performance." Said Sean Kalinich, Editor in Chief of Decryptedtech.com. "If you are an extreme enthusiast and want to squeeze every last drop of performance out of your system a product like Maingear's EPIC T1000 is exactly the last piece in the cooling puzzle. The 11% gain in cooling performance with a fairly aggressive overclock is simply awe inspiring." – Legit Reviews, Editor's Choice. "The EPIC T1000 is a testament to our commitment to constantly looks for ways to improve and innovative the PC performance and experience. We are developing unique solutions that help make PCs faster and quieter while still retaining a tasteful sense of style." Said Wallace Santos, Founder and CEO of MAINGEAR. Select MAINGEAR SHIFT, F131, VYBE and X-Cube custom pcs will have the option of selecting the EPIC T1000. All MAINGEAR EPIC solutions are geared towards maximizing custom built PCs while enhancing the overall experience.
