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 eggsThe Best

Pros: I have been using Arctic Silver for as long as i've been building PC's, and it has never let me down. There's a reason it's recommended by so many!

Just be careful during installation, you do NOT want to get any of this stuff on your motherboard!

Cons: None! This stuff is fantastic!

Other Thoughts: You don't want to be one of those guys that fries their motherboard because they put to much Arctic Silver on the CPU and it dripped onto the motherboard.

Seriously, use only a small, pea size dot, that is all you need!

5 out of 5 eggsBest stuff out there

Pros: AS-5 is without a doubt the best thermal grease you'll run across. The last application I did was on my CPU for well over 3 years without drying out and if it wasn't for the need to move my gear into a new case it would still be doing its job as well as ever. While, yes, there might be some of the more obscure TIM products on the market like gallium that might get a couple of degrees C lower delta, AS-5 won't eat aluminum.

Cons: As much as I love this stuff it is by far the messiest thermal paste I've ever come into contact with. It will get everywhere given half a chance.

Other Thoughts: When it's time to buy a tube, buy two and stash the second one away so you don't end up waiting a few days when the first one runs out mid-project. Besides, you can never have too much on hand.
