GELID’s GC-EXTREME claims to be a high performance thermal paste. After utilizing many thermal pastes over the years and trying to squeeze as much cooling capacity out of our cooling hardware as possible, we decided to try GELID’s GC-Extreme and compare it against the Arctic Silver 5 (AS5) we had been using on a system for the previous 2 years.

Since many thermal pastes perform pretty similarly at idle and casual system usage temperatures, we decided to check the capabilities of the thermal pastes on the higher end of the heat spectrum. With an extreme overclock on a delidded Intel I7-4770k overclocked approiximately 1GHz past stock clocks being cooled by an entry level Lepa AIO cooler.

The results were much more substantial then we expected.
