Arctic Silver 5

Arctic Silver 5

Arctic Silver 5 has the absolute best performance of any thermal compound. All of our computer silencing products come with thermal compound or tape. However, if you are re-using a quiet CPU cooler (and thus re-applying thermal compound), try Arctic Silver 5 for optimum heat dissipation. AS 5 will not disappoint.

Arctic Silver 5 is the absolute best thermal compound available. AS 5 improves temperature performance with a drop of temperature of about 3 degrees Celsius when compared to Arctic Silver 3. When compared to standard thermal interface compound, Arctic Silver 5's results are even more compelling.

Arctic Silver 5 Contains 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, AS 5 also contains sub-micron zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles. Arctic Silver's thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and long-term stability.

Controlled Triple-Phase Viscosity

Arctic Silver 5 does not contain any silicone. Arctic Silver's 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 Arctic Silver 5 thermal compoound thins out to enhance the filling of the microscopic valleys and ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink and the CPU core. Then Arctic Silver 5 thickens slightly over the next 50 to 200 hours of use to its final consistency designed for long-term stability.

(This process which occurs with Arctic Silver 5 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, permanent, and 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 AS 5 is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths.)

Absolute Stability

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

Arctic Silver 5 Specifications
Thermal Conductance: 350,000W/m2 C (0.001 inch layer)
Thermal Resistance: 0.0045C-in2/Watt (0.001 inch layer)
Average Particle Size: >0.49 microns >0.000020 inch
Extended Temperature Limits: Peak: 50C to >180C Long-Term: 50C to 130C

Arctic Silver 5 Performance

Arctic Silver 5 produces 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.

Arctic Silver 5 Coverage Area

Arctic Silver 5 is sold in 3.5 gram and 12 gram tubes. 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. At a layer 0.003" thick, the 3.5 gram tube will cover approximately 16 square inches.

Important Reminder About Arctic Silver 5

Due to the unique shape and sizes of the particles in Arctic Silver 5's conductive matrix, Arctic Silver 5 will take a up to 200 hours and several thermal cycles to achieve maximum particle to particle thermal conduction and for the heatsink to CPU interface to reach maximum conductivity. This period will be longer in a system without a fan on the heatsink or with a low speed fan on the heatsink. On systems measuring actual internal core temperatures via the CPU's internal diode, the measured temperature will often drop 2C to 5C over this "break-in" period. This break-in will occur during the normal use of the computer as long as the computer is turned off from time to time and the Arctic Silver interface is allowed to cool to room temperature. Once the break-in is complete, the computer can be left on if desired.


We DO NOT recommend using Arctic Silver 5 on the old 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. Arctic Silver 5 can be used on socket type Xeons without a problem.
