IC Diamond 24-Carat Thermal Compound (4.8g)

IC Diamond out performs all other compounds in independent user testing amoung the popular brands tested, IC Diamond contains 92% pure syntheic Diamond. Purified synthetic diamond has a thermal conductivity of 2,000-2,500 W/mKL compared to 406-429 W/mK for pure silver. IC Diamond is electrically none-conductive and none-capacitive providing protection for electrical components when used.
IC Diamonds exceptional durability is due to its high bulk loading of micronized diamond particles. Each tube of IC Diamond contains over 92% micronized diamond and ais 94% fully loaded counting other miscellaneous particles. This highly loaded mix (90% + Bulk loading) is recommended by chip manufacturers to limit pump out due to thermal cycling.
IC Diamond is a stand out amonst all compounds by providing both high performance and long term reliability. Lightly loaded or creme type pastes initially provide some preformance, however the effect can be transitory, sometimes only lasterin a couple of weeks or months. You are safe in the knowledge that IC Diamond thermal conductivity lasts forever.

Based on Independent tests IC Diamond performs 2.77°C better than OCZ Freeze, 3.28°C better than Arctic Cooling MX-3, 3.38°C better than Arctic Silver 5 and 4.74°C better than the Intel generic paste.

- Each tube of IC Diamond Thermal grease contains 7 carats of micronized diamond with diamond particle loadings @ 94% by weight. Material loading above 90% is recommended as the best combination of rheological and thermal properties to minimize interface pump out due to thermal cycling.
- Superior bulk conductivity
- Excellent thermal impedance
- Tight particle distributions
- < 40 µ maximum particle diameter
- Silicone free
- Lower viscosity
- Greater stability
- Non capacitive or electrically conductive

Performs Better Than I Can Imagine

Impressive results. Very satisfied. Need say no more.


Amzing drops of 10 degrees

simply amazing, easy to apply

dropped my 4670k on a h60 from 71-60
dropped my 7970 windforce from 75-65

worth every penny for the gains!


The Best of The Best

There is nothing better on the market currently, get yourself a 4.8G tube !


Unicorn Sweat

Got this today and replaced the stock TIM that comes with the H80i and the temps on my 4770K dropped nicely by 4'c up to 6'c, This is made from pixie dust and unicorn sweat, Epic stuff.


amazing thermal compound

Cant add much more to whats been said dont hesitate buy drop 5 degree's off my 8350 piledriver on idle 25 c now previous 30 c

Worth every penny

Had trouble keeping my Alienware m14x cool with the GT650 overclocked as far as it would go. After reading the reviews I thought i'd give this a try. Very impressed so far. Immediate results using Kombustor/Gpu-Z and HW Monitor i'm seeing an immediate 5 deg improvement when idle and even more under load.

Paul 2013-01-11

Top Quality Paste

I have to say this is some of the best thermal compound I have ever bought its dropped temps on my i5 3570K 4.8Ghz by 5 degrees with my NH 14D
this the very best thermal compound dont even think about it just get it

This IC Diamond 24-Carat Thermal Compoun

This IC Diamond 24-Carat Thermal Compound is brilliant!!

It is highly recommended that you refer to the proper application method recommended by the website and no others for best results.

Besides, it takes a couple of days for this thermal compound to burn-in.

Thoroughly tested

i've tested this paste for quite some time, having bought it months ago and honestly i cant see any difference between this and arctic silver 5
(which means it's very good, but not really worth the extra cash)
the lost point is only for value

as it is more expensive
i'm using a water-cooled i5-760 setup running 4 ghz for general use and 4.4 for gaming

43* idle
69* load ( burntest )

the results are identical to my old setup and i believe that the thermal transfer is capped on my cpu block, not the interface material
( it is made of very thin polished 99.9% pure copper )
if i had a silver cpu block there may be some better scaling
and yes, i have tried pea and spread, i'm currently using spread as it worked out best
my bracket is sprung so there isn't a ton of pressure, which could also be an issue

i would only advise this thermal material if you have an extremely good cooling setup to go with it
( chilled water, silver block, high pressure mount, ect )

Lugz 2011-11-16

A big difference

This is quite a bit more effective than MX-4. The one blob appication works fine, I took my heatsink off after a week & could see it had spread nicely. It comes off with normal rubbing alcohol. For an extra

Top Paste

Used as directed on my new build and worked as expect and the amount you get will last you a very long time

Was delivered the next day as promised and will certainly use agan

Emma Simms 2011-07-05

Great Stuff.

Very happy with the results.

My only mistake was trying to spread this stuff on the first attempt. Dont tyry it its impossible. A pea size amount in the middle is the way to go.

Wayne 2011-06-19


This stuff is pure gold! Er...diamond. It's shaved 12 degrees off the idle temperatures of my Atom D510 system (passivly cooled, from 58 idle down to 46), and 3 degrees off my GT240 in the same system (32 down to 29).

It's such a small investment for pretty big thermal drops, it really doesn't require any thought, just order some.

Locke 2011-06-10

This stuff is incredible.

Best.Thermal Compound.Ever.

Combined with a Accelero XTREME Plus
VGA Cooler (which unfortunately isn't sold by overclockers) this stuff has knocked 40C off my 6970!

Ray 2011-04-15

My new TIM of choice

*1.5c cooler than Arctic Silver 5

*Reaches optimum performance in hours

*No line method or anything, just a pea sized blob & away you go.

*Why settle for anything other than the best?

Gareth 2011-03-26

Best thermal solution

Better than arctic silver 5 and Gelid GC Extreme, my quad doesn't even reach 44c at full load. If you don't have any thermal compound, then this is a must. If you already have arctic silver then don't buy this until you run out.

random 2011-03-06


Well I was prepaird to pay 15 notes if it did the trick and I must say I'm NOT diasapointed.

Totaly amazed. This stuff has knocked off 6c on full load and 3c from idle. This stuff gets better the hotter your cpu is running, so for OC'in this is a must. I may just push my AMD 1090T to 4.1G now, because my temps never go over 59c .
