Test – Cooler Master MasterGel Maker Nano
| Specs | Price
To change from all the component testing today I’m going to give you a quick little test on something everyone is using when it’s time to build the setup, thermal paste! Cooler Master offers several models in its arsenal, but the brand recently launched a high-end thermal paste known as MasterGel Maker Nano, the very one that I will present to you.
Offered at a recommended price of 9.90 € TTC for a 1.5 ml tube, it is a bit more expensive than what you find at Noctua with its NT-H1 or even Arctic Cooling with its Silver 5, let’s see if this price is a bit higher translates to better performance.
The Cooler Master Mastergel Maker Nano thermal paste is delivered in a rigid plastic packaging through which you can see the syringe as well as the small spatula that will spread it all. At the rear a table of technical characteristics is present.
On the bundle side, we find the syringe of thermal paste, a small spatula to spread it on the processor, a cloth to clean the old paste as well as a small warning sheet (for Australians only). For thermal paste it is rather complete, this will allow it to be installed without asking any questions.
The configuration used during the tests is as follows:
I’m not going to show you how to install a processor on a motherboard, so here’s what it looks like when the beast is priest to be painted. From there 2 solutions, either with a grain of rice in the center of the processor, like this:
Or as Cooler Master recommends when seeing the spatula delivered in the bundle:
Quite honestly I much prefer the first method, at least the dough is spread evenly thanks to the pressure of the cooler during installation because the dough being thick it is not easy to spread it with the spatula and it is necessary to return several times in the same places to have a semblance of uniformity.
In order to test the thermal paste, I will carry out an OCCT test for 30mins and then take the temperatures of the processor cores (average of the 4 cores).
As we could imagine, the temperature difference between 2 thermal pastes is very slight, but the new paste from Cooler Master is still better than the Noctua NT-H1, by a small degree with 55 ° for the latter against 54 ° for the MasterGel Maker Nano, it’s not much but it’s already been won.
Here we are at the end of this test, what about the Cooler Master MasterGel Maker Nano?
In general, the use of thermal paste is limited to that delivered with the processor, which is sufficient in 99.9% of cases. When replacing the paste for various and varied reasons, it is not always possible to reuse the one delivered (too old, pre-applied paste, etc.), so you have to choose a model from the plethora of products available on the market. Cooler Master offers here a high-performance thermal paste that has nothing to be ashamed of against the competition and will transfer heat from the processor to the cooler optimally.
If you are looking for a quality and efficient thermal paste then you can’t really go wrong by taking the MasterGel Maker Nano, offered at a price of 9.90 € it will take care of your processor perfectly.
- Not easy to spread with the spatula
A big thank you to Vincent from Cooler Master who allowed me to do this test.
