Thermal Grizzly, hailing from Hamburg is a new German brand dedicated to the fight against high temperatures and poor heat dissipation. Their aim is to supply the overclocking scene with the true high- performance thermal compound products they deserve, especially when the conductivity of current products often leaves a lot to be desired. Outside of the overclocking scene however lies a whole world of products that would benefit from better and quieter cooling, including gaming PCs, workstations, mini PCs and many others. In addition to higher clock frequencies, improved thermal compounds such as these enable improved cooling with lower noise as well as drastic improvements to the service life of PC components.
To achieve these lofty aims, Thermal Grizzly worked closely with world famous overclocker Rom "der8auer" Hartung to test and analyse the chemical composition of competing products. The first thermal compounds released by Thermal Grizzly went by the (now famous) names of Kryonaut, Hydronaut and Aeronaut after being taken up enthusiastically by the community and making waves in the overclocking scene thanks to their superb performance.
For the first time Thermal Grizzly is happy to announce the introduction of a new liquid metal thermal compound by the name of Conductonaut. This compound consists of a eutectic alloy intended for use at room temperature. A special ratio of tin, gallium and indium, amongst others, combine to result in extraordinarily high thermal conductivity and excellent long-term durability. Due to the liquid ingredients, even tiny pores and gaps can be successfully smoothed out and filled, something that is only possible to a very limited degree when it comes to conventional heat-conducting paste due to their solid particles. The metallic contact area of the cooler and accompanying heatsink is coated in the compound.
