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 eggsMuch Better Than Stock Stuff.

Pros: Works great if applied correctly. Not to much and if it is spreed evenly it cools the temps down to 10 degrees more that the default white and other cheap compounds.

Cons: very little quantity in the tube for the ratio of what it cost. A few dollars more and you get a lot more in the tube with the Nano Diamond type.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Thermal Compound

Pros: Use this stuff on pretty much anything, north bridge heatsink, cpu heatsink, gpu heatsink. Usually drops temps about 2-3 degrees celsius compared to other products.

Cons: Wish I had a never-ending supply.

Other Thoughts: YOU DON'T NEED TO USE A LOT OF IT. Just literally a rice sized speck will do you good. It's just used as a buffer between the heatsink and whatever chip you're putting it on.
