Summary: Arctic Silver is renowned for its thermal paste and ability to conduct heat away from the CPU. Unfortunately, after using it in three different builds, I've found it to be less effective than the stock paste for heat dissipation.
Summary: The unit I recieved seemed to be off and irregular upon inspection. And with skeptical testing as well as a comparison that was proven to be true. I might as well have not had any applied, since it was basically like I didn't with the way my temps ran.
Summary: Would not use this product or recommend it to anyone again because of it's lack of durability, trust, reliability and effectiveness. This only lasted about 17 days cool until it started to warm up and heat up again.
Summary: I've been a mobile PC repair technician since 2007, I have contracts with major corporations and warranty repair services. I see the same people year after year and can revisit and see how this thermal grease reacts to various levels of usage; every single time this grease dries up and cakes out,...
Pros: Silver content- Silver is a great catalyst for all forms of energy
Cons: It cakes and dries up under low non-volatile usage, e.g., email surfing grandmother
Summary: Don't believe me I really don't care. I have done my homework on this thermal and it only lowers your cpu's heatspreaders temp by about 1 degree and that's being very nice. Get a digital therm. and test it out yourself. When it was slow back at the shop in 2000.
Pros: I ask anyone to actually do an A-B test with Artic and any other basic decent thermal out there. You will be lucky to shave 1 degree off reg temp! If your worried about 1 degree, you have more problems to worry about, like paying for your electric bill to run an air conditioner in the summer! I o...
Cons: Its all hype! I have been working , building, repairing,overclocking,networking, and built so many new workstations I have lost count. This compound is what Monster Speaker wire is to Hi-Fi absolutley worthless; unless you just like to waste money. From the top, I can't stand all these large corp...
Summary: I'm a technician contractor and affect most repairs for many companies, such as HP, Dell, Sears, etc. I usually come in to change out people's motherboards and w/e else may be going on with their system. I used to be like everyone else and believed the hype about this thermal grease.
Cons: HYPE Dries out Burns away on stock temps/usage
