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 eggsBest thermal paste around

Pros: This is by far the best thermal paste money can buy. I've never had a problem with it at all, actually had my machine running BELOW room temperature (other factors involved). But I find myself using this stuff to fix gaming console overheating and it far out-performs the junk that those manufacturers use. Don't over look something like this. $7 will save your system for years to come.

Cons: Honestly cannot think of any.

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.
