Noctua Debuts NT-H2 Thermal Compound and Cleaning Wipes
Ron Perillo / 4 years ago
Next Generation Thermal Interface Material
Noctua is introducing their new NT-H2 thermal compound, improving upon their well-regarded NT-H1 thermal paste. The new second generation thermal compound is just as easy to apply as the NT-H1 with a fine-tuned formula of metal-oxide microparticles for even better thermal performance.
One of the best things about the NT-H1 and now the NT-H2 is the fact that it does not require any break in periods. That means users can apply it directly and except long-term stability up to 5-years. Whereas typical thermal compounds will only perform after a day or more. In Noctua’s standardized internal testing at various platforms and heat loads, the NT-H2 can cool up to 2°C lower.
Aside from the availability of the NT-H2, there is also a new large 10g pack NT-H1 compound. Plus the new NA-SCW1 cleaning wipes (set of 20), ideal for cleaning up after applying these materials. These wipes are pre-moistened with a custom detergent mixture, which makes it easy to clean contact surfaces prior or after cooler installation.
The company has even prepared a series of videos on YouTube showing users how to use and apply these new products.
