Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine for me. 12/31/2012

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

Pros: Smooth consistency
Spread easily
Seems to be keeping the temperatures at reasonable levels
Post load idle temperatures come down quite quickly

Cons: Not exactly cheap, but you get what you pay for I guess.
It’s not the newest.

Other Thoughts: Built three “identical” i5 3570k based rigs with a single tube of this AS-5 and there’s still quite a bit left in the tube. Right off, temps seemed very reasonable with a evo 212 cooler on each rig. However, after some burn in time, we’re seeing a couple (2-3) degrees worth of temperature difference between each build. For my money, this is partly down to the one owner wanting a smaller amount of thermal paste (grain of rice) as opposed to half way between grain of rice and a small pea. Although his case airflow is also contributing to this temperature difference.

Overall, there seems to be some negligible increase in temperature at full loads on stock / turbo clock speeds, after a heavy burn in session @4.5-4.6 ghz, but nothing conclusive on the at idle temperatures. Some people claim that AS-5 is getting long in the tooth, but with so many positive recommendations, I’d say it’s tried and true.

4 out of 5 eggs Ok, but smells a bit rubbery 12/31/2012

This review is from: BELKIN F8E089-BLK Mouse Pad

Pros: Low cost
Ok build quality
Doesn’t seem to attract a lot of dirt

Cons: Smells like recycled tire rubber and its odor is quite pungent at times.

Other Thoughts: It’s a medium / large sized mouse pad and you can’t beat the price.
