Premium Ceramic Content:
Arctic Alumina uses a layered composite
of three unique shapes and sizes of ceramic particles to maximize
particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer. This exclusive
combination provides performance exceeding most metal based compounds.
Controlled Triple Phase
Arctic Alumina does not contain any
silicone. The suspension fluid is a proprietary mixture of advanced
polysynthetic oils that work together to provide three distinctive
it comes from the syringe, Arctic Alumina's consistency is engineered
for easy application in a thin even layer.During
the CPU's initial use, the compound thins out to enhance the filling of
the microscopic valleys and ensure the best physical contact between the
heatsink and the CPU core. Then the compound thickens slightly over the
next 50 to 200 hours of use to its final consistency designed for
NOTE: (This should not be confused with conventional
phase change pads that are pre-attached to many heatsinks. Those pads
melt each time they get hot then re-solidify when they cool. The
viscosity changes that Arctic Alumina goes through are much more subtle
and ultimately much more effective.)
Arctic Alumina will not separate, run,
migrate, or bleed.
Arctic Alumina does not contain any metal
or other electrically conductive materials. It is a pure electrical
insulator, neither electrically conductive nor capacitive.
2 to 10 degrees centigrade lower CPU full
load core temperatures than standard thermal compounds or thermal pads
when measured with a calibrated thermal diode imbedded in the CPU core.
Easy Clean Up:
Arctic Alumina can easily be cleaned from
CPUs and heatsinks with ArctiClean, isopropyl alcohol or any of the
cleaners listed in the product instructions.

I used this for some VRAM heatsinks mixed with a bit of Arctic Cooling MX-2. I made two small batches to apply ten heatsinks. I would recommend small batches through your applications because this stuff starts to set within a few minutes. Once it's set and cured, the adhesion is nearly permanent, and I presume it very well could be if you apply enough or just a lot.
The adhesives that came with the Twin turbo II were weak and my VRAM heat sinks fell off so I used this one and it worked really well. Be careful when preparing the mix since you have to apply them within a short time, I think 3 minutes is what's instructed by Arctic.
purchased this to attach heat sinks to my 570 to go along with the extreme cooler i purchased. mixed it with some thermal paste thinking it would improve cooling and not make it totally permanent. i think its a good idea to let it cure for 24 hrs but is hard after an hour.
