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 eggsIt works well

Pros: It dropped my 4790K's temps down a few degrees, especially when running Prime95.

Cons: It's a little messy, but thermal compound is.

Other Thoughts: It does the job, and even slightly better than the stock thermal compound that came with my H100i.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat compound

Pros: I have used this for many builds and I am getting near the end of the tube now. It has lasted a long time and all the builds I have used it on have had great cooling at the areas I applied the thermal paste. Would purchase again.

Cons: It isn't free and won't mow my lawn for me

5 out of 5 eggsPerformance

Pros: - This thermal paste has become the benchmark standard for it's great function and long life under many conditions.

Cons: - None that are apparent

Other Thoughts: Recommended over any of the stock thermal compounds. I haven't done any in depth comparisons in temperatures under normal usage or benchmarking to other brands, however there's plenty of information about this products performance available elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best

Pros: This is the only thermal paste I've ever used for my builds. I

Cons: Maybe I'm biased....

Other Thoughts: It's worth the few dollars to get this thermal paste. This tube has enough to last you a good long while. I'd guess around 100 applications.
