EVGA has launched its second generation thermal interface material. The EVGA Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease is said to provide an optimal thermal contact between your CPU, GPU and heatsink, and be easy to apply.

Whether you are a gamer, overclocker, or air or liquid cooler user, EVGA recommends Frostbite 2 to help you achieve optimally low temperatures.

Key specifications of the Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease, as shared by EVGA are bullet pointed below.

  • Specific Gravity: 3g/cm³
  • Breakdown Voltage: 250V/mil
  • Colour: Grey
  • Weight: 2.5 Gram Syringe
  • Operating Temperature: -40~180 degrees Celsius
  • Easy to Apply
  • Great Thermal Conductivity
  • Built for High Performance

EVGA provided a comparison chart of sorts intended to illustrate the superiority of its next gen compound but it isn't very worthwhile as it doesn't name the competitors or compare against its own first generation compound (chart embedded below).

The standard RRP of EVGA Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease is said to be US$12.99 for a 2.5g syringe (no other capacities available). However, EVGA is currently applying a $5 instant rebate, taking the price down to $7.99. Postage must be paid at $4.99 bringing the price up to $12.98, so it might be best to buy alongside something which has free delivery or from another source, when available.

Last August HEXUS readers shared their thoughts on the best way to apply thermal paste.

Interesting, i am open to trying new goo, when i get around to installing blocks on my TR and GFX card in a few months.
On the EVGA website it say this product has a thermal conductivity of 1.6 Watts per metre Kelvin.

Compare this to say Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut which has a thermal conductivity of 12.5 W/mK

So not much of a comparison to the best on the market?
Pity they didn't send you a few tubes to do some tests on.

Now there's an idea eh? A thermal paste shoot-out…after all it's something we all use at some point.
ohmaheid

There's maybe a couple of degrees between high end and mediocre brands of TIM.
Thats my understanding too.
Maybe that's due to the after all little surface area of a CPU ?
