Arctic Silver 5 is the most popular thermal grease

ReeVueBoi, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm taking 2 stars off for the unneeded cleaning solutions. I assume most people have alcohol around the house. You still need q-tips and coffee filter or lens wipes. You can't really go wrong with Arctic Silver 5.

Big chunk of something

Joseph D. First, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: After opening and trying to use noting came out. It was plugged with a big chunk of something. After clearing the clog I found that half the paste was solidified and formed the clog. Still enough to use but what a waste & a pain.

User Review

EagleTalonZ, Walmart

  • Summary: We used this on our PS3 after it overheated and then developed the 'yellow light of death' (YLOD). The compound does what it is intended to do but the price was a little much for so little. I was expecting much more.

Sort of overpriced kit

Douglas Harber, Amazon
26 August 2011
  • Summary: Arctic Silver 5 is one of THE names in thermal compound for mounting heatsinks. Not made clear in the description of this product, however, is that you're paying somewhat of a premium price for a tiny bottle of xylene cleaner (e.g., Goo Gone) and a tiny bottle of isopropyl alcohol.

Definitely not my first choice

ITNut, Radioshack
28 March 2005
  • Excerpt: AS5 had a good long run but its no longer anywhere near the best mainstream thermal paste available. That crown is held by Masscool Shin-Etsu, Tunic TX2 or TX3, or Arctic Cooling MX2. All are either cheaper and perform better or the same price and perform better.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Overrated, Quiet
  • Cons: Overpriced, Weak

  • Excerpt: Fits on a CPU. Did not see the dramatic cooling deltas that I would count on for some thing as pricey. Had superior thermal condution from the stock compund that came with the CPU fan.

Abram, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: It keeps my CPU from setting fire. Superior for rebuilding PCs. It did not lower my CPU temp, it raised it 1C. I utilised CPUID to measure my method temp immediately after running windows defender and then sitting idle with stock AMD paste that came on heatsink.

No está mal

Isma, amazon.es
18 May 2006
  • Summary: Quizá influenciado por las opiniones de demás usuarios/as, me esperaba más de esta pasta térmica. He de decir también que aunque había poca y tenía años, la pasta anterior que tenia puesta no era mala, pero aún así en el pc he notado muy poca mejoría, y básicamente, solo en carga, aunque todavía no...
