Thermal compound is necessary to create a
reliable transfer of heat from your computer's processor to its heatsink to
keep your CPU from overheating. Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound does this with
three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize
particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer. It's optimized for use
between modern high-power CPUs and high-performance heatsinks or water-cooling
solutions. This 3.5-gram tube contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to
25 small CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates.
Note: This is an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version,
which includes the product, but nothing else. They are packaged generically and
are best suited for system builders who don't require documentation or bundled
Brand Arctic Silver
<0.49 micron <0.000020 inch
Extended Temperature Limits:
Peak: -50 Degrees C to >180 Degrees C
Long-Term: -50 Degrees C to 130 Degrees C
3 to 12 degrees centigrade lower CPU full load core temperatures than standard
thermal compounds or thermal pads when measured with a calibrated thermal diode
imbedded in the CPU core.
A 3.5 gram syringe contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to 25 small
CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates. At a layer
0.003" thick, the 3.5 gram syringe will cover approximately 16 square
unique shapes and sizes of pure silver particles to maximize
particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
Contains over 88% thermally conductive filler by weight.These
thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and
Ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink and the CPU core.
Will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.
