    The best ever thermal paste I ever experienced. Better than almost all other more expensive stuff. I only know the silver based can beat it.

      you musn't roll around in thermal paste much, artics 1 of the worst on your skin, kyronaut, gc-extreme, not to mention the expensive anti ageing syrums liquid ultra, liquid pro and conductonaut. But the ultimate thermal paste is the night time longevity paste prolimatech pk1 improves hydration long life.
      But all sh*t talking aside, artics good cause its always on sale somewhere compared to the price of most others due to extreme price difference.

    •  

      Try Thermalright TFX, Shin-Etsu X-23-7921-5, or DOWSIL TC-5888.

      •  

        apart from the thermalright the others are never on sale I find, very cost prohibitive lol

      •  

        Sorry, for the noob question. But isn't TFX hard to apply?

    •  

      The Noctua paste is really good too. I almost bought some MX-4 till I read a bunch of indepth reviews and found the paste that was about to come with my Noctua NH-D15 was actually better. 12.5 W/mK vs 8.5 W/mK better

      •  

        I have two tubes of this 2019 edition ( I thought the first one was counter fit) and one of the standard one. This 2019 edition one seriously under performs the standard version for some reason. I have now use two tubes of Noctua NT H1, better than even the standard MX4

    •  

      NT-H2 outperforms it, but not by too much.

      That said, 1 or 2 degrees in thermal paste alone is all you can ask….

    This or the grizzly?

    • +3 votes

      Grizzly is better, but also more expensive. This is better value.

      •  

        relatively speaking its better, wont notice the diff if any using an aio/air cooler(sub250 aio, sub 100 air) or wraith/stock intel blower lol.

    •  

      grizzly better was on sale for about $12 recently.

      •  

        for 1g though, vs 4 of the arctic, best bet is to get some gd900 that way when it reaches that volcano molten lava temp and becomes thermal generator rather than medium you can melt your cpu core like chernobyl's

      Confusingly Arctic Silver 5 is from a completely different company. I always just assumed they were both the same brand.

      apply generously to buttocks when cold… if you don't use it all up in one go, use the natural hole as a sealant to minimise chance of the tube drying out.

      Arctic P14 PWM PST. Great fans for the money.

      •  

        don't ever drop them from 1m height onto hard surfaces, 12, 14, 8 or 9 models lol.

        •  

          I'll pass then. I drop my pc almost every other week

      •  

        Got 4 P14 in my case with arctic 280 aio
        They are not noisy and working fine!

        •  

          Yep, using 3 myself (2x front intake, 1x exhaust). Nice and quiet. Got 2 spares if I ever need/want more (bought the 5 value pack last year from Amazon). Was using a Corsair ML140 as exhaust previously which was pretty damn loud, glad I switched to these Arctics.

    •  

      what size hole you wanna fill cover?

  •  

    that's hot :^)

  •  

    I want to buy this but I'll prob buy a noctua cooler if I upgrade my pc, so it'd be a waste of $8.57

    So I had to Google what thermal paste was and what it’s actually used for. Google came up with:

    ‘Can Vaseline be used as thermal paste?’

    ‘Absolutely not…’

    🤨

    •  

      So you're saying
      that even if its a paste-like consistency it cannot be used like a specialy product?…
      so how is it I use peanut oil in my car??? exactly. fight that logic.

    This or something else for PS4 Pro?

    • +2 votes

      Considering the effort in taking apart a PS4 in comparison to a PC, I’d be inclined to use a better paste like Thermal Grizzly.

  •  

    Any suggestions of removing the old paste from the cpu before applying the new one? Or just apply the new one without cleaning?

    • +1 vote

      Heat up your CPU first with a benchmark or something, shut down and power off PC, remove old cooler and thermal paste with isopropyl alcohol and a lint free wipe, put new thermal paste and cooler on.

      •  

        why heat up?

        • +1 vote

          So the old thermal paste softens up and becomes easier to remove

    •  

      ^+ if stuck, make sure you shake it left and right gently so you don’t break/bend any pins.

        I've heard a twist left to right like motion works wonders

    Is this suitable for laptops?

      Yes, don’t know why you were negged though.

      • +2 votes

        Thanks, looks like you got negged for replying

    •  

      I used it for mine. Be sure to add little more because laptops aren't meant for perfect fit of the heat sink, so you need more than rice size to fill the gap.

    •  

      It's okay but expect to reapply it occasionally to maintain performance as it pumps out more than is ideal for laptops and their generally poor mounting mechanisms. Same with Kryonaut. More ideal is a paste that stays more viscous under heat like Kingpin KPx and some others. The price is right though, so it's hard to complain too much and if you just want to get rid of old crusty stuff and don't need top performance it's definitely fine for that. If you want one application to maintain initial performance for long periods then best to do some research on pastes people find work better for laptops. Lots of discussion on NotebookReview forums.

      Personally, as an example of a paste at a similar price and available in Aus, I would try Shin-Etsu X-23-7921-5 as suggested by someone else in this thread, appears to be available at MSY for $8/5g. Haven't used it myself but from what info I found with a quick search it should do better than MX-4 in the context of laptops. Most of the good ones I know of for laptops are more expensive and usually not available here.

      MX-4 isn't popular because it's the best - it's just cheap, close enough to the best for standard PC usage, and easy to find. For a normal PC absolutely go MX-4, but laptops and GPUs usually see more difference between pastes that are more suitable to that application and can more easily justify the higher cost of those pastes because of it.

    Arctic MX-5 should be available in two weeks on amazon.

    Is this any good for the phat PS3’s flashing red light problem?
