I know there are people out there who just go straight ahead and use the pre-applied thermal paste that comes with the CPU and get horrible temps. If you are going to spend a lot of money on a high end CPU then you might as well spend a few more bucks on a quality thermal compound. It doesn't add much to the cost of a build and it's worth it in the end because you will get much lower temps than with pre-applied thermal paste.
Even when using Prime95, the CPU still stays very cool thanks to this awesome thermal paste. I use the pea method and have always gotten good results. I know some people use the single strip method right in the middle of the CPU and spread it out but I have found that the pea method works better.
I did some comparisons against the pre-applied thermal paste that comes with most CPUs/GPUs and found out that Artic Silver 5 dropped my temps around 7-10c. Artic Silver 5 comes with plenty of paste that can last a long time. Make sure you do it right because some people have their own methods which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. If you don't apply it right, you may even get worse temps than before. Putting just the right amount of thermal paste between your CPU and your cooler makes all the difference, trust me.Read more ›
But for MOST uses, this will be perfectly suffice.
Should be enough to apply onto to quite a few processors, when used correctly.
There is a cap, so you can seal the "tube" for storage. The cap simple places on, it does NOT screw on, so it's not that secure.
In short if you need thermal compound, this is a good one, if you're over-clocking extensively, Arctic is a good budget compound.
Look no further than artic silver 5. You can use this for both your CPU as well as your GPU coolers.
This paste will keep help keep your processor, even if over-clocked, at a low temp when idle (in my case 35 deg) or under load (at around 80 deg in my case again).
And there's so much in the tube that you'll be using this on future builds as well - so it's well worth the money.
The only thing you have to be careful about is the application. Some use a credit card, some just put a dab in the middle and press the cooler onto it. Any way you choose, make sure there's no too thick of a layer. You don't want to spread it thick like peanut butter or jam which will decrease its performance. You need a fine layer but not that fine that your cooler is touching the processor directly. It's a fine balancing line but one which is common to all pastes. Don't knock the paste if you don't apply it right.
If you get the application right, you'll be rewarded with low temps and increased component life.
I recommend this Artic Silver to anyone that cares about proper heat sinking!
Seriously, only a very small dab is required and it does the job. I can feel absolutely no heat on the block that the heat sink is mounted to.

Works just as intended. Followed the guide on their website. I use a Hyper 212 Evo cooler with my i5-4690k and it never goes above 60 degrees Celsius under load.Published 5 days ago by Amazon Customer

Works as intended, I like artic silver only because its not as dense as the other paste i've tried in the past. I mean thermal paste is thermal paste but this one I can trustPublished 2 months ago by andrew
