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.

1 out of 5 eggsUsed

Pros: Great product.

Cons: I gave it one egg because apparently the tube of Artic Silver 5 had been used or not filled correctly by the Mfg. because there is only about 3/8" shaft left before the tube is empty. You use a very thin coat of this Artic Silver otherwise it is squeezed out the sides of your CPU and wasted.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for my 2500k/Hyper 212 Plus

Pros: I've always used Arctic Silver 5 for my 2500k/Hyper 212 Plus. I clean and re-apply new thermal paste every spring right before going into the summer. I've only used the carbon based type paste once(the tube that came with my Hyper 212 Plus) and that stuff was okay, but Arctic Silver 5 shaved 10C off my Cpu temps@5.0ghz.

Cons: None product works as intended. Only complaint I have is that their 's a 200 hr break in period with this paste vs. the MX4 and other carbon based pastes, which have literally no break in period.

Other Thoughts: I'll always use Arctic Silver 5 since it seems to halt the best results.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat more can I say

Pros: I've used this product for over 6 years in many builds. It has never let me down. Whatever your cooling solution may be, it's only as good as good as the thermal coupling allows. In my experience this product not only delivers on day one, it continues to deliver year after year.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Provides a good seal between the cpu / heatsink. After the break-in period this helps to provide great cooling.

Cons: (Not really a con, more of an inconvenience) Break-in period is longer than other products, but it's worth the wait.

Other Thoughts: Been using this stuff for years, and after the break-in period it provides excellent thermal conductivity. I wouldn't use anything else (for now).
