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 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 eggsRecent Purchase

Pros: - Great heat dissipation
- Works immediately
- Good seal

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was worried about this product at first, because people said that it required 200 hours of throttling. What people fail to realize is that, it works immediately, and will continue to lower temperatures until 200 hour mark, where it will than be preforming in it's most optimum state.

My old stock paste was running out, and I changed it for the Silver and it was amazing, worked instantly like my old paste, and temperature gradually reduced over the week. Amazing product.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Easy to apply
Performs as advertised
Haven't needed to reseat the fan since install

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Applied this compound to my i5 with and aftermarket heat sink/cooling fan, much much much better than the stock compound that was used on the stock heat sink (which was not very good, would have had to reapply even if I stayed with the stock heat sink/fan)

4 out of 5 eggsIt works.

Pros: It's good thermal paste.
It's not electrically conductive.
It's very, VERY dependable.

Cons: It's electrically capacitive, which can be problematic under very specific, but rare, conditions.
Every thermal paste or thermal grease I've run into is a pain to clean, and this stuff is no exception.

Other Thoughts: I've used this stuff forever and it has yet to betray me.
