The 10 Best Thermal Pastes
We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. The bond between a heat sink and processor is the first line of defense against the number one enemy of high-powered computers -- heat. Thermal pastes are specially formulated compounds designed to fill in the microscopic imperfections on metal faces and maximize surface area, keeping CPUs and graphics cards at safe operating temperatures. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best thermal paste on Amazon.
