About this product


Product overview

• Improves the heat transfer between your CPU and heatsink, keeping your CPU cool
• Silicone based with a thermal conductivity of 2.4W/mK for good heat transfer
• Supplied with thermal interface material (TIM) remover, to make heatsink and CPU surfaces ready for re-application
• TIM cleaner is citrus based, making it safe to use and it leaves no residue
• Manufacturer part number: AK-MX004

Why would I need thermal compound paste?
Thermal paste is used to ensure you get maximum heat transfer from your chipset/CPU to the heatsink. The thermal compound included is perfect for any application, and it has a good thermal conductivity rating of 2.4W/mK. Provided as a five gram syringe, you’ll have enough for 10 to 15 CPU cooler installations, and the 125ml bottle of thermal interface material (TIM) remover will last even longer, making this kit perfect for a PC enthusiast.

What can I use the cleaner for?
This TIM (thermal interface material) cleaner is used to remove thermal pastes or pads from heatsinks, CPU and other chipset surfaces (GPU, RAM etc.), in preparation for new thermal compound or paste. It can be used to remove all residues including silver based ones. Being a citrus based solvent, it is safe to use and leaves no residue.

PLEASE NOTE: By law we are not allowed to sell butane or solvent based products to persons under the age of 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant kit and well worth the price. Comes well packaged and as stated in the product description comes with the compound, compound remover and a small credit card sized spreader. So far it has been used to reapply thermal paste to 2 pc processors and a PS3's processor and graphics chip. There is still loads left to use on other projects/repairs. 5 stars, no complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good kit It's good, although worth noting that the cleaner and the thermal paste can be bought separately and cheaper. The cleaning kit is good, there is plenty in there to last several jobs. The thermal paste is OK, by no means the best, but it gets the job done and it is convenient to have an all in one kit. Good product, pleased with the purchase.
