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 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: 3 years running on the batch before this and the batch before that 6 years without changing paste.

4 out of 5 eggsThe BEST! Artic silver.

Pros: Not runny, a large rice sized portion will perfectly cover your cpu. Drops temps 3-5c over stock compound. Match that with a decent cooler you should see 10-15c off of your load temps, maybe more.

Cons: Price, I always hate shelling out $8 for a tiny tube that I usually misplace after one single use :( :D :( :D who is with me>?!!!

Other Thoughts: Buy it anytime you are swapping coolers.

5 out of 5 eggsA must have

Pros: Much better than the cheap thermal paste that comes bundled with coolers. A must have if you're building your own rigs.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Seriously, people are complaining that it's expensive?? The cost of it compared to the cost of the CPU that you're trying to protect is miniscule.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: The CPU was running a little bit hot at first but after a few hours of setting in, the Artic Silver worked very good! I've had over 200+ hours of setting in and my temps have dropped by 4-7c

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsBest Cost-Performance Ratio

Pros: Does exactly what it says it does!

Cons: I wish the applicator had a more narrow needle like tip.

Other Thoughts: This is my go to paste for all computers that I am refurbishing. I've been using it for years and have never came accross a thermal paste that beats this price performace ratio. I have seen up to 30C drops after applying this paste.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: My CPU fan no longer sounds like a rocket ship lifting off. I haven't measured the thermal difference, but the fan is much, much quieter now when I game. To be fair, my old thermal paste was really messed up from the few times I removed and replaced the heat sink over the years.

Cons: It's a bit pricey, but $9 to protect a $100-$300+ CPU is worth it to me.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried anything else; I just bought this because it's known to work. This is the first time I've applied thermal paste. I noticed that the way you need to apply it depends on the type of CPU you have. If you're applying this to your main and only PC's CPU, you may want to print out the PDF instructions.
