Features

  • Three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
  • Contains over 88% thermally conductive filler by weight.These thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability
  • Ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink and the CPU core.
  • Will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.
  • 3.5-gram
  • Average Particle Size: <0.49 micron <0.000020 inch
  • Extended Temperature Limits: Peak: -50 Degrees C to >180 Degrees C
  • Long-Term: -50 Degrees C to 130 Degrees C
  • Performance: 3 to 12 degrees centigrade lower CPU full load core temperatures than standard thermal compounds or thermal pads when measured with a calibrated thermal diode imbedded in the CPU core.
  • Coverage Area: A 3.5 gram syringe 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. At a layer 0.003" thick, the 3.5 gram syringe will cover approximately 16 square inches.

    This sized tube was more than enough for a custom loop that needed 5 surfaces covered in past .Great thermals as well!

    Thermal compounds are thermal compounds for the most part, but I love the syringe on this - very easy to use and apply. (10/10)

    This thermal paste is a bit dated but a friend gave me the tube for free. Cant beat free! If I had a choice, I would have gone with some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut or Noctua NT-H1. Really hate that Artic Silver 5 needs to cure before getting the best temps out of it.

    from completed build My second build

    I had some left over Arctic Silver 5 compound from some other builds so I just used it for this build too. I haven't use any other TIM so this is my standard

    Been using this stuff for years and will continue to do so in every build to come! This stuff isn't the most expensive, nor the cheapest, but it surely is some of the highest rated thermal compound on the market and for good reason!

    Used the classic pea method for application. CPU is staying cool. No complaints.
