Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the cutting-edge “GC-Extreme” thermal compound. In comparison to the previous multi awards winner compounds of GELID Solutions the “GC-Extreme” breaks all records.

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. Created for Extreme Users the “GC-Extreme” thermal compound ensures the best heat transfer from your CPU, VGA or even Chipset. Like the other compounds of GELID Solutions the “GC-Extreme” offers a GELID applicator which enables an easier application. As a product of the GAMER product line the “GC-Extreme” contains 3.5 g.



The “GC-Extreme” is awarded and recommended by experienced reviewers such as ATI-Forum, Fudzilla and TechPowerUp:
“Die GC-Extreme hat GELID Solutions wieder die Leistungs-krone unter den Wärmeleitpasten gebracht. Durch die hervorragende Leistung eignet sich die “GC-Extreme” für leistungsfähige Gamingsyteme und kann somit als neues Flag-schiff angesehen und weiterempfohlen werden. Dies macht auch ATi-Forum.de und verleiht der GELID Solutions “GC-Extreme” den ATi-Forum.de Gold Award.” --ATI Forum

"GELID's GC-Extreme thermal compound is a clear winner, as it provides lower temperatures for the same price. It is clear that GELID Solutions keeps getting better and better in this game, and GC-Extreme is a clear proof of that. If you take the MSRP of $9.99 into consideration, GC-Extreme has a clear advantage over the competition and it clearly deserves our Recommended Award." --Fudzilla.com

“GELID Solutions has shown us that thermal compound makes a big difference when cooling down a processor with their new, high performance “GC-Extreme” compound. Taking a massive 18 degrees Celsius off the normal paste that comes with your Intel processor, and outperforming all of its competition, the “GC-Extreme” is what you’re looking for if you want the highest performing grease in the market. Being paired with an applicator(an innovative, flexible piece of plastic aiding the application of the “GC-Extreme”), you should not have to look any further than GELID Solutions “GC-Extreme” when shopping for some new thermal compound.” --TechPowerUp.com

The “GC-Extreme” thermal compound is available now and has a MSRP of USD 9.99 / Euro 6.99.

Wow a thermal paste round up?! Good, TPU needs more diverse reviews instead of headphones.


I like seeing the spreader included, helps when you dont want to waste a credit card or student id. And at $9.99 if it comes close to AS5 then it's got a good chance of making into my setup.

Thats the review I already linked to :p if this stuff is cheaper than AS5 then its worth a thought, otherwise AS Ceramique or AS5 are the better options for price/performance.
