Thermal compound is necessary to create a reliable transfer of heat from your computer's processor to its heatsink to keep your CPU from overheating. Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound does this with three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer. It's optimized for use between modern high-power CPUs and high-performance heatsinks or water-cooling solutions. This 3.5-gram tube contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to 25 small CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates.

Note: This is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version, which includes the product, but nothing else. They are packaged generically and are best suited for system builders who don't require documentation or bundled accessories.

  • newegg 99.9% Pure Silver The Arctic Silver 5 uses three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
  • newegg High Density The Arctic Silver 5 contains over 88% thermally conductive filler by weight. The thermally-enhanced ceramic particles including micronized silver, sub-micron zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick, Easy and Effective

Pros: Quick and easy to use great cooling so far after 31 days of use.

Cons: None so far, does exactly what it needs to do.

Other Thoughts: Used with CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Like Linus mentions you really only need about a two inch line as the cooling head mounts so tight on the CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat syuff!

Pros: Great thermal conductivity of the silver
Great electrical conductivity(may be a con for some users but in other thoughts you will see why its a pro.

Cons: Not edible

Other Thoughts: I have used this in my computer build and works great with thermal conductivity.

I have also Used it when working on boards where the heatsink is used to connect multiple grounds together (such as in the volvo s60 dashboard)
Using this compound has allowed better electrical contact between the two metal surfaces and thus allowing it to stay on. the ground lead of the voltage regulator goes through the heatsink on this particulat package and is a good design if you can design it properly. Volvo's engineers just didnt think well enough
(Never trust a car company with major electronics! I have done work for multiple companies just testing electronics and they way they lay it out is super inefficient and are bound to fail. )

rant over good product, very helpful!

5 out of 5 eggsStill works.

Pros: Does the job. Takes a few days to set, then keeps temps cool. Way cooler than stock TIM.

Cons: Electrically conductive, so if you don't know what you are doing and either apply it wrong or too much and it comes into contact with your motherboard, it can short out the board.

Other Thoughts: Been overclocking for over twelve years, used Arctic Silver 5 for the last eleven of them. It works.
