    Noctua Presents NT-H1 High-end Thermal Compound

    Noctua presented today a new premium-grade thermal compound for enthusiasts who demand both exceptional performance and maximum ease of use: NT-H1 is a hybrid compound of different micro-particles that allows for minimum thermal resistance, excellent ease of use and outstanding long-term stability.

    "Many current TIM solutions have drawbacks either in terms of performance or ease of use", explains Mag. Roland Mossig, Noctua CEO. "Enthusiasts in particular, who frequently change their coolers, demand both first class performance and trouble-free handling though. Our NT-H1 combines these two features and provides all the performance, reliability and quality that Noctua users have come to expect from our products."

    NT-H1 exhibits extremely low thermal resistance as well as excellent pliability and spreadability. As a result, the compound is not only highly efficient but also very easy to use because there's no need to smear it over the heat-spreader: Put one drop of NT-H1 onto the centre of your CPU, install the cooler and that's it! NT-H1 provides top performance right from the start and doesn't require a longer "burn-in" time. If you happen to make a mess, that's no problem at all: NT-H1 is not electrically conductive and fully compatible with all materials commonly used in PC environments.

    In addition to its excellent performance and handling, NT-H1 provides decisive advantages in terms of reliability and long-term stability: Thanks to its exceptional curing, bleeding, dry-out und thermal cycling characteristics, NT-H1 can be used for several years without any problems.

    NT-H1 is not only suited for air and water cooling, but also for use with compressor coolers: Even at the very lowest temperatures, the paste delivers full performance and remains easy to clean off.

    Price and availability
    NT-H1 is available with immediate effect in syringes of 1.4ml, which is sufficient for at least 15 applications. The suggested retail price is EUR 7.99 / USD 8.99.

    yeah with AS5 i found it didnt spread too fast, the MX2 was a bit thinner so it spread faster/easier with smaller amounts. ASC/AS5 ended up being thicker than needed with some of my heatsinks, actually hindering the performance unless i went to the effort to spread/thin it wuith a razor.

    So how much is that in grams? 3.5g of AS5 is the same price. That Zalman "nailpolish" ZM-STG1 is 3,5G also and it says 10 aplications, so maybe Noctua has a bit more. If it really performs as well as AS5, might just have to try it.
    Never had any trouble with AS5 though, put a drop to single cores and line to multicores and cooler does the rest (if it doesn't have some whimpy mounting pressure).

    I found out that heating AS5 makes it spread a lot thinner. Heat it with by talking a heatgun to hit (blow dryer) or putting it a hot water bath.

    nothing really beats AS5, unless you get ceramique (gpus) Mx-1 (everything) or the liquid TIM, which is above all the best at lowering temps...but best at making a mess :laugh:

    I really don't understand how 1 thermal paste is easier to apply then another. You just put some on your component and carefully spread it out with a plastic tab or something. Its not like the the thermal paste is chunky, its pretty consistent.
