Arctic Silver 5 is the most popular thermal grease
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. It is easy to apply being a thinner paste than many others and It does the job creating a good method of heat conduction between heat sink and CPU or GPU. The manufacturer claims a reduction of about 5c but this varies wildly.
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.
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. Sets up like epoxy, no need to have for a ZIF socket, pulled the chip correct out cemented to the cooler although removing it. Some swear by it, other people dont. Dont think I would use once more.
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. It measured 44C typical and 51C playing Crysis for 10min at the end of the 8 hour run.Installed a new 120mm fan on the rear of the case (It had been broken for the stock AMD paste test) and removed and cleaned...
Summary: hab das ding voller hoffnung gekauft und mit sicherheit korrekt verwendet - auch den sitz vom kühler kontrolliert und hab ein schlechteres ergebnis als mit der original zalman pasta die beim 7000 alcu dabei war!! angeblich soll die volle leistung der arctic erst nach 500 betriebsstunden erreicht sein, also hab ich noch hoffnung - hatte vorher eine temp von ca. 48° und jetzt eine temp von etwa 52°! ev passt das teil auch net zu meinem kühler?
