GELID Solutions Launches GP-Ultimate 120x20 Thermal Pad

Tech innovator GELID Solutions unveils the ultimate performance GP-Ultimate 120x20 thermal pad. The GP-Ultimate 120x20 is a product of GELID Solutions GAMER product line. The GP-Ultimate 120x20 is designed to provide perfect thermal interface to transfer heat to heatsinks when installed on PCB with height differences and uneven surfaces such as DRAM ICs, VRM ICs, power MOSFETs, NVRAM ICs and other high-temperature SMD components.

Thanks to its enhanced multilayer matrix, advanced material composition, and the ultimate 15 W/mK thermal conductivity, the GP-Ultimate 120x20 offers the best performance in class. It is non-electrical conductive, non-corrosive, non-curing, non-toxic and supports extended operating temperature range -60° to 220°C. The GP-Ultimate 120x20 features seamless application and has the thermal pad dimensions of 120x20mm with 0.5 mm, 1 mm, 1.5 mm and 2 mm thickness to best fit enlarged PCB surfaces of RAM Memory modules, GPU and CPU VRM circuits, M.2 Type SSD and other densely packed electronic devices.
"GP-Ultimate 120x20 provides a perfect weapon to combat heat in high-temperature applications and delivers optimal fit and support for your RAM, VRM and M.2 Type SSD", said Gebhard Scherrer, Sales Director of GELID Solutions Ltd.

The GP-Ultimate 120x20 is available now and comes with the following package options:

Single Pack (1 x GP-Ultimate 120x20 included), has a MSRP:
  • 0.5 mm thickness: USD 3.50 / 3.00 Euro
  • 1 mm thickness: USD 4.50 / 3.85 Euro
  • 1.5 mm thickness: USD 5.00 / 4.25 Euro
Value Pack (2 x GP-Ultimate 120x20 included), has a MSRP:
  • 0.5 mm thickness: USD 5.50 / 4.65 Euro
  • 1 mm thickness: USD 7.50 / 6.35 Euro
  • 1.5 mm thickness: USD 9.50 / 8.00 Euro
  • 2 mm thickness: USD 15 / 13 Euro

Good thing thermal pads have avoided RGB so far

Gelid catch up to the whole high GDDR6X temperature it seems.
Do lower temperature even matter for GDDR6X, can TPU do some benchmarks please :)

I used Gelid GP Extreme (12W/mK) pad for my GPU fullcover and it's much better than the stock EK thermalpad.

What GPU do you have ? what is your before and after temp after the thermal pads change ?

I prefer FujiPoly's top line.

No point, I checked, GC-Extreme vs Fujipoly Ultra Extreme - did not detect and difference. 290x with full cover block.

I have HD7950 @ 1200/1700. Since 2012 I was using the stock pads that came with an EK fullcover block. In January I made a thorough cleaning of the whole PC and swapped the pads on GDDR and VRM for Gelid Extreme. Temps went down by a lot, especially on VRM.

That's a common mistake: you just bought pads with the highest thermal conductivity on paper. Unfortunately Fujipoly Sarcon XR-m 17 W/mk has a different texture and chemical composition; it's extremely more stiff, it should be used in high pressure enviroment not in a pc. Their price range is also different from the other ones.
Fujipoly 11 or 14 (alphacool rebranded them) are the best performing ones.

GELID Solutions it should go back to school and learn math, the specific pricing this has more salt than entire sea of Hong Kong.

One package of six strips for 5 Euro total this would be reasonable.
Stealing from kids this is a crime in Greece.

So the EK pads (5W/mK) was still good enough that your ancient 7950 can last until this day, it's good enough :D.

Well, why wouldn't it? LC-ed since the beginning and still going strong. :)

Currently waiting for Q1 2021, when we'll have both new AMD and Intel CPUs, as well as new Radeons and GTX 3080 20GB. Will choose what's better. :) For now staying on 2600k @ 5GHz and said 7950. This setup was my best PC investment ever. The youngest part (GPU) is 8 years old and yet I can still play new games.

So where are they best used? I just bought a whole bunch to use on my PC.

What do you mean, this is the B-version.
Blue for better temps.

R and G are coming soon.
Red for better OC
Green for eco friendly

They're not blue, it's just a protective film. Pads are dark grey.

Fujipoly have 17W/mK and even more. When the TIM is the bottleneck, W/mK makes a difference!
