Does Noctua make good thermal paste?

Does Noctua make good thermal paste?

The Noctua NT-H1 performs nearly as well as top-shelf thermal paste compounds, but at a fraction of the price. If you’re looking to save money on thermal paste and not suffer any performance repercussions, then the NT-H1 is a great choice.

How long does Noctua NT H1 last?

NT-H1 can be used for up to 2 years after opening as long as the tube is closed correctly after usage. The paste can be stored at normal room temperature, cooling is not required.

How long does Noctua thermal paste last?

Excellent long-term stability It can be stored at room temperature for at least 3 years and due to the compound’s exceptional curing, bleeding, dry-out and thermal cycling characteristics, it can be used on the CPU for 5 years or more.

Is Noctua thermal paste good for GPU?

NT H1 is fine for GPUs, just do a little BB sized dot on the GPU (well more depending on how big the GPU die is on your GPU) and attach the heatsink, don’t spread it out before hand else you’ll cause air bubbles. It will perform ATLEAST as well as AS5.

Is NT-H1 conductive?

NT-H1 provides top performance right from the start and doesn’t require a longer “burn-in” time. If you happen to make a mess, that’s no problem at all: NT-H1 is not electrically conductive and fully compatible with all materials commonly used in PC environments.

What is NT-H1 thermal paste?

Product Description. Noctua’s NT-H1 is a renowned hybrid thermal compound that has received more than 150 awards and recommendations from international hardware websites and magazines.

Is Noctua thermal paste toxic?

H410: Very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects.

What is NT-H1 made of?

NT-H1 consists of a hybrid compound of different micro-particles, which has been specifically optimised for use in PC environments. Thanks to its extremely low thermal resistance as well as excellent pliability and spreadability, NT-H1 achieves outstanding results.

When should I replace Noctua thermal paste?

Noctua NT-H1 and NT-H2 thermal pastes have a specified usage time (on the CPU) of up to 5 years. However, you will most likely see excellent results for much longer than that, so we recommend to simply check the temperatures occasionally after passing the 5-year mark.

How do you apply NT-H1 thermal compound?

Thanks to its excellent spreading properties, there is no need to manually spread NT-H1 before installing the cooler: simply apply a small dot of paste onto the CPU (multiple dots for larger CPUs, see details below), put on the heatsink and you’re ready to go!

What is the thermal conductivity of Noctua NT-H1?

While NT-H1 had a thermal conductivity of 8.9 W/m.K and a density of 2.4 g/cm³, NT-H2 has a density of 2.81g/cm³ while the actual thermal conductivity rating is unspecified.
