Cooler Master introduced a trio of high-performance thermal interface materials (TIMs), under the new Master Gel series. These include the Master Gel, the Master Gel Pro, and the Master Gel Maker Nano. The Master Gel is the most affordable of the three, targeted at gaming PC builds, as a replacement to the stock TIM your an air-cooler ships with. Its main feature is low viscosity, enabling easier application. It also has zero burn-in time. The Master Gel Pro is slightly more premium, with higher metal particle density, for higher thermal conductivity than the Master Gel. This is targeted at enthusiasts with DIY liquid cooling setups. Leading the pack is the Master Gel Maker Nano. This has the highest metal nano-particle density, for thermal conductivity as high as 11 W/m.k, and is targeted at professional overclockers with extreme cooling setups, such as LN2 and dry-ice.
