99.9% pure silver:

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 contains over 88% thermally Conductive filler by weight. In
addition to micronized silver, Arctic Silver 5 also contains sub-micron zinc
oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles. These thermally-enhanced
ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.

Controlled Tripple-Phase Viscosity:

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.

(This should not be confused with conventional phase change pads that are
pre-attached to many heatsinks. Those pads melt each time they get hot then
re-solidify when they cool. The viscosity changes that Arctic Silver 5 goes
through are much more subtle and ultimately much more effective.)

Not Electrically Conductive:

Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.

(While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic
Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it
is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and
could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical

Absolute Stability:

Arctic Silver 5 will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.

the paste works great on my gpu, but my temps raised a bit on my cpu

What can I say? It's a HUGE syringe of AC5. Apperently it's enough for 30+ applications on dual core CPUs. I've read shelf life is pretty good if one keeps in stored in a nice cool place, e.i. my fridge.

Being so large, it actually makes it easier to apply while the CPU is still in the case. . No fiddling aroudn with a wee tiny 3-gram syringe.

Local a 3-gram tube costs $15, paying $18 for four times as much just made sense. I've been gooping everything i can get my hands on.

My CPU, Norbridge, GPu, Mom's GPU and CPU, and about 4 other computers.
