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 eggsDoes it's Jo

Pros: Came with plenty for the job and was viscous enough to evenly coat the CPU. Seems to have done its job well because I haven't had any issues with the CPU overheating. It's a bit tough to judge if this was enhanced by the thermal compound or not because it was a new fan I installed.

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes What Its Suposed To

Pros: I haven't messed around with tons of thermal paste, but I chose this brand because, well, it is all you hear about to buy if you are into performance parts and want to keep things cool. My room can be what seems like an oven sometimes because the door and windows are always shut AND sometimes my PS3 is on at the same time, thus really sealing in the heat. Because my other parts factor into these findings, I will state what I have as well. I'm using the i7 4790 CPU with the Hyper N520 heat sink and the HAF 932 Advanced case, along with my oven room. My temps are around 29C/32C when idle, and I've seen them spike up to about high 50's when under 100% full load on all 4 cores/8 threads. I think this is pretty good myself because on my older PC in this room I had an AMD Athlon x2 6400+ with stock heat sink and my idle temps in an OPEN CASE were 39C/41C, and lets not even talk about full load...

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Real goopy/stringy, but what paste isn't?
