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 eggsSilver is better.

Pros: Does what is suppose to when applied properly.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Be sure to read how to apply thermal pastes, too many people don't know what they are doing and get higher temps from poor contact.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: High quality, low price.

Cons: Should you put too much and it spills over onto your motherboard, the potential of frying it is pretty high if you have below-average intelligence.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because this is the kind I've always used. I hadn't even realized a carbon-based thermal paste was available that comes with no risk. No regrets though, it's still an amazing product.
