Arctic Silver Arcticlean Thermal material Remover & Surface Purifier ACN-60ML (2-PC-SET)  - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Purifies surfaces well prior to applying thermal compound.
The citrus smell is an added bonus.

Cons: A visual diagram would be nice for first-time users.
Rubbing alcohol pads seem to do a better job cleaning surfaces without spreading the old applications.

Other Thoughts: Follow the instructions when using this product. Avoid getting the liquid on components other than the surfaces you wish to purify. Clean up isn't entirely easy, although the citrus smell is nice.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-12G - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs One of the best compounds available. 04/06/2015

This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-12G - OEM

Pros: The large syringe allows for easier application and storage of this compound. 12 grams of this compound permits multiple applications over time. Compared to the stock thermal compounds shipped by OEMs, Arctic Silver does a better job maintaining thermal dissipation from dye to heatsink.

Cons: The compound is electrically conductive. Do not get this on components and surfaces that do not require the use of a thermal compound. The possibility of shorting out your device from misuse does exist. Clean up takes a bit of work.

Other Thoughts: Prior to installation, purify the surface/component before applying this compound. You do not want to dilute it with previous compound applications. Be sure to stress the component (CPU/GPU) upon initial application to set and cure the paste. Initial temperatures will seem lower than the average temperatures after a month of consistent usage. Over time, the paste will dry and a reapplication may be necessary if not enough compound is applied initially.

My first installation with this compound was on an Early 2011 13.3 inch Apple MacBook Pro running an Intel Core i5 2.3ghz (Sandy Bridge Core i5 2415m). Initial temperatures using Apple's stock thermal compound ranged from 55 degrees celsius at idle to 107 degrees celsius at load. After applying this compound, I was able to drop the temperatures to 38 degrees celsius at idle to 96 degrees celsius at load. That's an excellent improvement compared to what similar users have reported. I expect this MacBook CPU to last much longer with these improved ratings.
