GELID GC-1 High Performance Thermal Compound Review


Final thoughts

The Gelid GC-1 stuff did the job better than either of the competitors. If you call the generic crap a competitor. It handled the heat and did an even better job of dissipating it than the all-time great Arctic Silver. The generic stuff didn’t even make it into the league as far as I am concerned. I hear the people now, “Oh, you did the test in a muggy garage in the summer, no fair!” Yeah, and you all keep your computers directly in front of the air conditioner? Do you really want to take that chance? The cheap stuff was $2.99 a tube. GC-1 is $6.00. It’s a no-brainer.
