5 out of 5 eggs Arctic Silver 5 forever 07/03/2016

This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: By far the best thermal compound on the market. Works much better than other thermal pastes I've tried.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This stuff is amazing. I've used it in all my builds for the past 8 years and it never fails. I've also been able to resurrect several old video cards I thought were dead only to discover their thermal paste was completely dried up. Cleaning the old off and using this makes them work like new. Use this and never go wrong.

Pros: 8 cores of loveliness, obviously incredibly fast, best bang for the buck, period. What more can I say about a CPU? It works.

Cons: Cooler leaves a lot to be desired. Feels flimsy and cheap. I immediately scraped off the thermal paste and used Arctic Silver. Idles at about 28-29 degrees.

Other Thoughts: I slapped this onto an ASUS M5A99FX PRO with 16 GB G.SKILL and an EVGA GTX 970. I couldn't be happier. Order this!

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM

Pros: Looks nice, runs at correct speed, color matches the ASUS M5A99FX.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've been using G.SKILL ram in builds for about 8 years now and they've never let me down. Get these!
