Launch of “GC-2” – Thermal Compound

Premium Thermal Compound GC-2 is the successor of the multi award winner GC-1

HONG KONG, 28 May, 2009
Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the premium “GC-2” thermal compound as
the successor of the multi award winner “GC-1”. The “GC-1” thermal compound will be end of life by
end of May 2009.

You can see the review here.

Optimal heat conductivity and low thermal resistance make the “GC-2” best-in-class thermal
compound and enables an effective heat transfer. At the same time the compound is non-electrical
conductive, non-corrosive, non-bleeding and non-curing. Aiming for the same high performance and
price range as its predecessor the “GC-2” contains 7g paste which is twice as much as most other
competitors. The “GC-2” will be part of the SILENT product line of GELID Solutions.
“GC-2” is awarded and recommended by experienced reviewers such as Driverheaven and
“GELID Solutions previously impressed us with their GC-1 paste and we are left with a similar
impression of GC-2. Their new thermal compound exceeds the performance of Arctic Cooling's MX-2
under load and idle condition which makes it our first choice in any system build.”
“I found the GC-2 compound very easy to use and spread on both the IHS and the base of a few
cooler types I tried it on. With the four thermal pastes I tried including the original GC-1 compound, I
found the GELID Solutions GC-2 thermal compound to be the best performer. GC-2, in our lab-like
environment of testing, performed just shy of 2° Celsius better than the GC-1, and more than a
degree better than both of the others tested. Great job on the new thermal compound, it makes it to
the top three as far as what thermal compound I would purchase.”
The “GC-2” thermal compound is available in June 2009 and has a MSRP of USD 6.99 / Euro
