NT-H2 is the further improved second generation of Noctua’s award-winning hybrid thermal compound. Combining the iconic NT-H1’s proven features, superb ease-of-use and renowned long-term stability with a novel, fine-tuned formula of micro particles for even better thermal performance, NT-H2 is an enthusiast-grade paste for the highest demands. Whether it’s air- or water-based cooling, CPU or GPU applications, overclocking or silent systems: NT-H2 will consistently deliver outstanding results and thanks to the included cleaning wipes, it is just as easy to remove as to apply.
Further improving the award-winning NT-H1, NT-H2 uses a new, fine-tuned mixture of metal
oxide micro-particles for even lower thermal resistance and reduced bond-line thickness at typical
mounting pressures. This allows it to achieve an even better performance in most application
Easy to apply
Thanks to its excellent spreading properties, there is no need to manually spread NT-H2 before
installing the cooler: simply apply some paste onto the CPU (see instructions for details), put on
the heatsink and you’re ready to go!
Easy to clean with included wipes
The 3.5g pack of NT-H2 includes three large NA-CW1 cleaning wipes that are pre-moistened with
a custom detergent mixture and make it child’s play to remove: simply wipe off the paste from the
CPU and the base of the cooler using one of the wipes and you’re done!
Not electrically conductive, non-corroding
While some high-end thermal compounds and pads are risky to use due to their electrical
conductivity or corroding properties, there’s no risk of short-circuits with NT-H2 and it’s completely
safe to use with any type of CPU cooler, regardless of whether it’s made from copper or aluminium
and whether it’s nickel-plated or not.
Excellent long-term stability
NT-H2’s unique formula is highly stable over time, even after longer periods of usage. It can
be stored at room temperature for at least 3 years and due to the compound’s exceptional
curing, bleeding, dry-out and thermal cycling characteristics, it can be used on the CPU for
5 years or more.
No break-in or burn-in required
Some thermal compounds need a longer break-in period or cure time until they reach their
full performance and some thermal pads must undergo a dedicated burn-in process. By
contrast, NT-H2 is ready to go right away and doesn’t require any special preparations
