Arctic Silver 5 achieves a new level of performance and stability as a result of its unique high-density silver filling and improved thermally conductive ceramic particles. Arctic Silver resellers may be found worldwide. Arctic Silver 5 is the industry standard premium thermal compound. Arctic Silver 5 is compatible with a wide range of bond lines used to connect modern high-power CPUs to high-performance heatsinks or water cooling systems. EFFECTS SURPRISING – Already upon initial usage of this thermal solution, you may notice a decrease in temperature, which will reduce the equipment's noise level and increase user comfort. THE MARKET'S NUMBER ONE – Numerous testing have confirmed that the most popular pick satisfies the highest quality standards not only of regular computer users, but also of die-hard Overclocking enthusiasts.
On the surfaces of CPUs and heatsinks, no matter how perfectly smooth they appear, there are minute pits and valleys. These holes and valleys trap air, which is one of the worst conductors of heat known to man; here is where thermal pastes come into play. Thermal paste is utilised to cover all of those little pits and valleys, allowing for molecule-to-molecule thermal contact, and is engineered for high thermal conductivity. This results in lower temperatures, longer component life, and no burned-out CPUs. Without a heatsink and thermal paste placed, it just takes seconds to irreparably damage or kill your CPU. Thermal pastes come in a number of different quality levels.
I still have plenty left to do all three, however my initial application on the CPU and GPU was the larger number that some people use for other pastes, but this paste heats up quickly and does not perform well with excessive amounts. I've found that adding a small amount at a time and spreading till a paper thin covering forms on the surface of whatever you're glueing works best. You should not be concerned if your layer is not perfectly even or immaculate; the Heatsink will take care of it.
Others have reported using it without issue after six years, but that is with a brand new tube. Before applying, thoroughly clean the connection between the heat sink and the CPU. If you notice that the temperature of your CPU has increased somewhat after using your 10-year-old tube, I recommend obtaining a new tube. Indeed, I would urge that you get a new tube in any case. This tube is convenient in size and will suffice for a few applications.
