Thermal Conductivity 6.0 W/mK
Safe and easy handling
High Performance Gap Filler
145 x 145 x 1.5 mm
Efficient Thermal Conductivity The silicone based material of the Thermal Pads outperforms generic pads by far by providing an efficient thermal interface between heat sinks and electronic devices.
Filling the Gaps Due to its great elasticity and compressing features, the thermal pad works as the perfect gap filler and bridges uneven surface topography, air gaps and rough surface textures without any problems.
Easy to Apply Installing Thermal Pad is as easy as cut and apply. Perfect for beginners.
Safe Handling The pad does not contain any metallic particles, is electrically isolating and not capacitive. The handling is safe as contact with any electrical pins would not result in damage of any sort.

The biggest challenge with thermal pads is usually a trade off between thermal conductivity and convenience of a relatively non-messy application compared to thermal paste. However, the 6W/m•K rating of this pad is nothing to be sneezed at. Many pads marketed as proper "thermal adhesive" type have a fraction of this rating. Though the Arctic pad is not marketed as an adhesive, it is actually very pliable and tacky so most small lightweight heatsinks actually stick readily to anything with a modest surface area. My use was to cool down an ICH 10 series chip that was generating temps in the 90's Celsius. The use of this pad and a small heatsink with some good airflow brought it down into the mid-60's to low 70's degree range Celsius maximum. Highly impressed given the small heatsink's cooling surface greatly limited heat to air transfer. Regardless, it was a success without any messy paste. Highly recommended!
If you have a steamy laptop, then these are great for connecting your heat-producing areas to your laptop chassis. If you have a laptop with aluminum or metal body, then use these pads to create contact points to the metal body. The metal body has a much larger surface area and can absorb and dissipate heat much better. This will lead to overall cooler-running laptop. I did this with my laptop and it lowered the temps of my laptop quite a bit. Many online reviewers say this thermal pad is as good as some thermal pastes which is amazing. Installation is easy, they are sticky and will adhere to most surfaces. You can easily use a pair of scissors to cut them to whatever size you need.
Since putting these on my laptop, I've noticed increased temperatures on my aluminum chassis (to the touch) during gaming sessions but decreased temps on my CPU and GPU cores. This allows me to sustain full CPU and GPU speeds longer before the laptop starts throttling speeds to keep temps under...
This is a really good value thermal pad. Performance is on par with most manufacturer included quality pads. But a step up from some others. They're not the best money can buy. But definitely the most cost effective. The size is good enough for two graphics cards or more depending on how many spots take thermal pads on the card. I could have easily done 3 MSI GTX 1080 Sea Hawk X EKs per pad. But you have to remember that the majority of EK water blocks require .5mm and 1.0mm thick pads. There is a 1.5mm thickness as well. But I've never needed it. These pads are easy to cut and easy to apply. They're a bit sticky, but not too much or too little. The size of these pads is great. It pretty much gives you enough surface area for any conceivable PC cooling project. The higher efficiency thermal pads cost WAY more. Unless you're obsessed with temperatures or have about $50 to blow per graphics card, just stick with this stuff.
