ARCTIC recently underwent a brand redesign to reflect their diversification into new market segments. However, their primary focus will no doubt still be on cooling solutions, of which we've seen a number reviewed here at Vortez under the ARCTIC Cooling sub brand. Their latest addition to an already successful line of cooling products is the ARCTIC MX-4 thermal paste. Last year saw the release of the ARCTIC MX-3 thermal paste which easily topped our chart as a risk free, non conductive and excellent performer. ARCTIC is hoping to improve on their winning formula to deliver a solution that is not only superior in quality but also much lower in price.



ARCTIC Cooling has been the first port of call for enthusiasts for a long time but for those unfamiliar with the brand, here is a few words from them:

What We Do:

ARCTIC COOLING is a leader in creating thermal cooling solutions for personal computer systems that enable CPU (Central Processing Unit), GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) and PC case cooling whilst reducing the noise level. Increased heat generated by modern computer systems has overwhelmed most existing cooler manufacturers in their efforts to keep pace with the demands in terms of noise level and cooling. The noise pollution caused by today´s IT systems has increased, severely affecting productivity in open office environments. ARCTIC COOLING has been working closely with globally recognized companies such as Inno3D, ECS, Galaxy, Sapphire, Powercolor and ATI. Through these partnerships ARCTIC COOLING has been able to adapt to the changing market requirements and has quickly developed the optimal solutions. ARCTIC COOLING combines the Swiss art of engineering to realize innovative cooling ideas. Thanks to the low labour cost in Asia, ARCTIC COOLING has consistently produced innovative solutions which lead the market in price / performance. Cooling solutions are created from the demand of our customers. Due to the continuous product development at ARCTIC COOLING the demands of end-users will always be satisfied. As a result of the head-start ARCTIC COOLING has in knowing end-user´s requirements, manufacturing possibilities and ARCTIC COOLING´s strong R& ;D, ARCTIC´s products will continue to be market leaders in cooling solutions and provide assemblers, computer hardware distributors and IT-technicians with innovative, virtually silent, cost-effective cooling solutions for CPU, GPU and PC-case worldwide.



Following the footsteps of the MX-3 thermal paste, ARCTIC has big shoes to fill with the MX-4 so let's see how it fares against its predecessor and the growing competition.
