Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview The Arctic Silver 5 is the follower of the well-known Arctic Silver 3.
New in the Arctic Silver 5 is the mixture of non siliconic synthetic oil, which gives a better stability than the Arctic Silver 3. The size of the particles is much reduced compared to Arctic Silver 3. Thus it can adjust much better the subtle unevennesses, allowing a better performance than Arctic Silver 3.

Important Precautions

Don't put it in your mouth. .
Don't give it to children or leave it where children can get a hold of it.
Keep it away from pets.


Caution:
While much safer than silver greases engineered for high electrical conductivity, Arctic Silver thermal compound should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. The compound is slightly capacitive and could cause problems if it bridged two close-proximity electrical paths.

Never turn on a computer without a heatsink properly mounted on the CPU with a thermal interface material between the CPU core and the heatsink. A modern high-performance CPU can be permanently damaged in less than 10 seconds without proper cooling.

Arctic Silver is a grease and does not have any adhesive qualities. It will never dry or set and cannot be used to glue a heatsink to a chip.
To permanently glue a heatsink to a chip that does not have any other attachment method, please use Arctic Silver Adhesive or Arctic Alumina Adhesive.

We do not recommend using Arctic Silver on the older slot type Intel Xeon processors with large multiple square inch CPU to heatsink interfaces. The huge contact area and large gaps between the processor and the heatsink require a thermal pad or thick mesh-reinforced paste.

The Intel Core i7-6700K has sated the appetite of enthusiast gamers since August 2015, but if a quad-core chip just doesn't tickle your fancy, you might have been twiddling your thumbs in anticipation of a new HEDT (High End Desktop) part.

New processors usually grab all the release limelight, relegating the supporting core logic and memory to mere footnotes. This time, a brand-new chipset and DDR4 memory are equal partners in the platform.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Date Issued: 19th Jun 2008

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by It does what it says I have been using arctic silver 5 for a couple years now and unlike the dyed silicone grease that is common on the market that breaks up and causes a dramatic increase in thermal resistance. This will not let you down it stays stable and doesn’t migrate or dry out and crack. I recommend TIM cleaner for the preparation for and removal of this. 23 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it's supposed to Haven't tried others but it works so why bother trying anything else. 07 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by exelent thermal paste Easy to apply and works extremly well with my h100i 04 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best paste I think it's The Best thermal paste you can get. I've read many reviews before buying it and the better ones either have about 5% better performance and 200% of the price, or they're worse. So this paste is simply the best. It takes about 200 hours to reach its full potential, but that won't be a problem for a gamer, will it? :) 31 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Forget the rest, buy this. This is the definitive thermal compound. Forget any others and just buy this, you will not regret it. 13 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Timeless brand with Excellent thermal conductivity. I've used this on AMD & INTEL products works wonders. Everyone has their own way of applying thermal paste but my method works a treat on my cooling solutions. I'd advise buying this because a little goes a long way, and sometimes less is more. 25 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as it should Its thermal compound .. it works well (when applied correctly of course, like any TIM). Plenty in just one tiny syringe to do several applications. I don't know if it is any better or worse than cheaper TIMs but I do know that it does work well in my recent build and after the 200 or so hours burn in time I've lost another degree or 2 from my APU temps. 19 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best thermal paste I always get this stuff. Always have, always will. 11 January 2014
