The Thermal Pad based on silicone and a special filler outperforms generic and performance pads by far. Due to its low hardness and great compressibility, the thermal pad works as the perfect gap filler and bridges uneven surface and gaps without any problems. Installing the ARCTIC Thermal Pad is child's play; perfect for beginners. The Pad does not contain any metallic particles, is electrically isolating and not capacitive. The handling is safe as contact with any electrical traces would not result in damage of any sort.
