Arctic Silver 5 is optimized for use between modern high-power CPUs and high performance heatsinks or water cooling solutions.
Arctic Silver 5 uses three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
Arctic Silver 5 also contains micronized zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride in addition to the silver. These thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.
Arctic Silver 5 does not contain any silicone. The suspension fluid is a proprietary mixture of advanced polysynthetic oils that work together to provide three distinctive functional phases. As it comes from the tube, Arctic Silver 5's consistency is engineered for easy application. During the CPU's initial use, the compound thins out to enhance the filling of the microscopic valleys and ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink and the CPU core. Then the compound thickens slightly over the next 50 to 200 hours of use to its final consistency designed for long-term stability.

They are not kidding when the info says you can get about 2 dozen applications from this tube. I bought mine many years ago. The adhesive on the label is gone. I had to use packing tape to reattach. Unfortunately, AS5 is now in the middle of the pack when it comes to performance. It is still better than any other of those white no name pastes/pads. I mainly use it for non-overclocked builds/repairs now.
3.5 grams goes a very long way.07-12-2012
In my opinion, this is the best Thermal Paste out there. Yes, there are some really good other brands, but AS5 has never failed me and in the vast number of reviews everywhere, AS5 comes out on top. Well worth it for the price.

As a metal, silver has a higher thermal conductivity than copper. I''ve used this stuff to match heatsinks to CPU''s for over a decade. It works. It works VERY well. I still keep a syringe of it in my toolkit.

Ive used arctic 3 and 4 and none are as good as number 5. It will stain you competent, but you just have to rub a little harder than normal with alcohol to take off. I guess its the high silver content that causes that(which is good). Wouldn''t recommend anything else to anyone looking to cool down anything from video cards to north and south bridges.
AS5, I think I love you.02-24-2010

Awesome stuff. I wouldn''t use anything else.
