Product Description

Size Name:Pack of 1

*Arctic Silver 5 With its unique high-density filling of micronized silver and enhanced thermally conductive ceramic particles is optimized for use between modern high-power CPUs and high performance heatsinks or water-cooling solutions. *ArctiClean is a two-step cleaning process that removes existing thermal grease or pads and prepares the thermal surface for a fresh application of thermal interface material. ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover quickly emulsifies and dissolves the existing thermal grease or pad from the CPU and/or heatsink so that it can easily be removed with a clean cloth or paper towel. A few drops of ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier and some gentle wiping then removes the remaining residue and inhibits flash corrosion on copper or aluminum.

Arctic Silver 5 (or AS5) is the best thermal compound on the market IMHO. It's basically an essential if you're installing a new CPU. This kit is everything you need to clean your heat sink, prepare the surface of the heatsink and your CPU, and ensure that your chip functions at the coolest temps possible.

If you apply the compound correctly, the result is always a 4-10c drop in CPU temperatures under load. You will not notice a huge difference at idle. The real gains in heat dissipation come when the CPU is being pushed. Also, don't trust the board maker's proprietary software to tell you what your temperatures are; download a good program like RealTemp 2.41 or Everest for free (use google to find them). Either will give you more accurate numbers than Asus PC Probe, or whatever software your board manufacturer supplies.

The instructions provided with this kit are minimal (small text on the side of the bottles) and could be confusing if you've never used thermal paste before, so here are some detailed instructions that will help you do it right. Here is the process:

1. Remove the old thermal compound. This is accomplished by using the remover (bottle 1). Apply a several drops of the cleaner to the top of the chip and let it soak for 20-30 seconds. You might have to reapply more drops of cleaner again depending on how much thermal compound was present on the chip to begin with, or how hard it's gotten over time. Wipe all the waste off with a lintless cloth or cotton swabs. You might have to do this several times. Make sure you get it as clean as you can before moving to step 2.

2. Apply the surface cleaner (Bottle 2). Apply several drops, and then work them over the entire surface of the chip or heatsink in a circular motion.

Background:
I have an older computer than most of the reviewers here. It's a Dell XPS400 with a 3.2GHz Pentium-D dual-core processor. These CPUs were manufactured with the older 65ns fabs, which means they consume a lot of power and generate a lot of heat. It's showing it's age now, but it's still fast enough to run Windows 7 64-bit.

The Problem:
Lately, I've noticed that my computer was getting louder and louder. I would rationalize it because the weather is getting warmer and I was playing some CPU intensive games. Eventually, it got to the point where it sounded like a jet engine was keeping my girlfriend from sleeping. Being the cheapskate that I am, I would rather add better cooling than to simply buy a new computer system. It then dawned to me that the computer was nearly FOUR YEARS OLD and the thermal paste had probably dried out by now. Vacuuming out and reapplying the thermal grease would be my cheapest option.

The Product:
I haven't built a computer from scratch in a long time, but many years ago when I did, Arctic Silver was the product to get. I did some research and it appeared that it was still considered one of the best thermal paste applications around. I found it on Amazon for a good price and purchased the Arctic Silver kit (includes ArctiClean1, ArctiClean2, & Arctic Silver 5). I opened up my computer, cleaned off all the dust and followed the Arctic Silver instructions.

ArctiClean1 - dissolves and emulsifies the old thermal grease on your CPU and heatsink. If your computer came pre-built, the manufacturer most likely used way too much. I had to reapply around three times to make sure all the previous thermal grease was removed.

ArctiClean2 - removes and purified any residue left by ArctiClean1.

Most people in the market have already heard of Arctic Silver; it's fair to say that Arctic Silver is to thermal paste what Kleenex is to facial tissues. In any case, this reputation is well-deserved, as the performance of this thermal paste is still top-notch.

I just built a budget gaming computer for $400 total based on a (now overclocked) Athlon II X3 425 and Radeon 4850 1 GB. I did not purchase an aftermarket cooler immediately, as I got the boxed version of the CPU. However, after overclocking to 3 GHz, I realized that replacement thermal paste and aftermarket cooling would be necessary. In keeping with the budget philosophy of my build, I chose to go with the Cooler Master Hyper TX3. Although the TX3 does come with its own tube of thermal paste, I figured I might as well get the AS5 kit, since I'd need to clean the CPU anyway.

In any case, the cooler and thermal paste did the trick. My CPU is now running at 3.36 GHz on stock voltages, up from 2.7 GHz. Temperatures are substantially cooler than the stock heatsink at stock clocks. Performance is up anywhere from 10-18% depending on benchmarks, and the total cost of the additional cooling is less than 10% of the build. I'd say that's a decent return on investment.

Arctic Silver 5 is one of THE names in thermal compound for mounting heatsinks.

Not made clear in the description of this product, however, is that you're paying somewhat of a premium price for a tiny bottle of xylene cleaner (e.g., Goo Gone) and a tiny bottle of isopropyl alcohol. If you happen to have those items lying around in your cleaning arsenal, there's not much value added by this kit.

It's certainly possible that if you don't have those items lying around and you don't actually have any other need of them, you might save a bit of money with this kit in that you might pay a bit more than the extra 5 or 6 bucks for a bottle of cleaner and a bottle of isopropyl alcohol. However, you'd end up with a much larger supply of those items for not a lot more money.

In the end, the kit is just fine for what it is. I'm just slightly groused that the description made it seem like the added components are more exotic than they really are.
