Cooler Master shows off purple CryoFuze thermal paste featuring nanoparticles for improved...

WTF?! Are you tired of using the same old silver or greyish thermal paste? Wouldn't it be great if somebody made an outlandishly colored material that would look great as it's being applied, even if you only see the stuff when changing CPUs/coolers or applying a new layer? That's where Cooler Master comes in. The company has unveiled its new CryoFuze Violet thermal compound, a paste so purple it would have made Prince envious.

In all fairness to Cooler Master, it isn't trying to sell the CryoFuze Violet based on its color alone. The company says the paste uses nanoparticles to deliver enhanced thermal conductivity. It adds that the balanced viscosity and electrically insulated composition allow for excellent bonding as well as easy application and clean-up.

The paste is also non-corrosive and oxidation resistant, which means it won't solidify or dry out over the years. Moreover, CryoFuze Violet thermal compound can maintain stability from as low as -50C all the way up to 240C, and it has a conductivity value of 12.6 W/mK. For comparison, the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut premium paste has a thermal Conductivity of 12.5 W/mk. You also get the usual injection tube for applying it to your hardware. The paste is available now for $31.

Cooler Master also sells purple thermal pads that can be used on a wide range of components. Like the thermal compound, they also boast nanoelements within their material.

A purple thermal paste isn't going to obviously complement your all-purple gaming PC setup, of course, but if you're the kind of person who owns a Cooler Master purple chassis, gaming chair, and other purpley products, just knowing that the compound keeping your CPU chilly is color coordinated will likely bring you some peace of mind.

Cooler Master is no stranger to the non-conventional. Last year it unveiled what was described as a fully immersive, multi-purpose, semi-enclosed workstation for professionals and gamers alike. It also looked like a massive egg covered in RGB lighting and enough gamer-focused features to ensure someone would be happy to live in it.

I like options, but $30 thermal grease?
Maybe if it perfectly applied itself. Otherwise I'll pass on this one.

Seriously though, this is just plain stupid. It's just another "fancy" thermal paste that tries to convince people that it actually matters and they should spend more on it. Cryonaut has been the most successful at convincing PC noobs that it makes a difference for people who aren't competitive OC'ers. The differences in performance from different brands of thermal paste are a joke.

Tom's Hardware compared EIGHTY-FIVE brands/types of thermal paste and, with CPU air-cooling, across all actual thermal pastes (no pads or tapes), what could be called "the best" read at 32.0º while the one that could be called "the worst" read at 39.5º, giving an 8º spread across ALL of them. To 99.999% of PC users, including gamers, a delta of <10º is irrelevant when it comes to CPU temperature and certainly isn't worth paying double or triple the price. I don't care HOW fancy the packaging is! :laughing:

The conclusion is clear:

One should ALWAYS** use the Procter&Gamble tooth paste, unless you need to use the computer within the first 12 hours.

Yeah, I wonder why they called it "Proctor&Gamble" toothpaste instead of just calling it "Crest". :laughing:

I think it might be a fire hazard if you use that. :laughing:
