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.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite simply, the best thermal compound I've ever used.

Pros: -5-7c cooler load temps
-cooler cpu temps lead to overall cooler temps

Cons: -Takes FOREVER to cure
-High silver content makes this compound conductive (not for beginners)

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from ac ceramique 2. the ceramique definitely works well, but nothing compares to this compound. This compound alone allowed me to reach safe temps while overclocking and is also very effective at cooling gpus.

The two downsides to this paste are its cure time and conductivity. I didn't really notice a difference for the first couple days from the ceramique. For an impatient individual this could be a deal breaker. The conductivity is also another issue. Since the silver content in this compound is so high it can become conductive and hence short out equipment if you're not careful. Because of this level of conductivity I definitely wouldn't recommend this to a beginner.

For someone with a bit more experience though this is simply one of the best compounds available. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to overclock.

CPU: AMD FX 8350 (4.5ghz oc)

GPU: Radeon 5770 FLEX Edition

Pros: Used if for years and has NEVER FAILED!

Cons: WORST SHIPPING EVER!
