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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Didn't reduce my temps at all than intel 980x stock thermal paste So dissapointed with shipping this tube was ั So not impressed i was expecting five degrees cesius but nope operating similar temps with a v10 Explained$$ for no lower in temps
Excerpt: Great efficient TIM Careful, Warning, Can short your chips, do NOT let this to spil out the sides, do NOT more than apply, was warned by numerous mfg to not even use, but if your cautious and dont place to significantly so that it doesnt spill you really should be in great shape!
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.
