Default Arctic Silver 5 Extensive Review

Arctic Silver 5 compared to its older brother AS3 and Coolermaster Premium (Shin Etsu). How does it perform? We test it on an Intel system, letting each compound "burn in" for 3 days.

anyways, can't get my hands on Shin Etsu 751 here, but if I ever find it I will surely do a comparison.

it's clearly marked "Coolermaster" in the test, so you can't confuse it with any other "shin etsu" out there.

where did you get your 751?

Wow, that conclusion came out of nowhere. You just finished saying that AS5 was no better then the competitiors, but yet it's the greatest thing.

When will "enthusiasts" get it? The newest is not always the greatest. I swear, if that extra .5 C gives you even 1 more MHZ overclock, I will personally buy, and send all of you a lifetime supply of AS5.

my testing methodolgy was flawed as I put way too much paste between the CPU & heatsink.

I'm planning on doing an update of this article, also including the tests done on an AMD setup.

as you will read from other reviews of AS5 (http://www.xtremesystems.org/modules...wcontent&id=29 being one of my favourites) AS5 has a 3-5C lead over AS3. And you can be sure that lower temps mean better overclocks (10-20mhz more.. nothing spectacular, but every bits helps )

I started some extra re-testing with the AS5, here's how the CPU should look like after you've removed the heatsink, the amount of "goo" applied is considerably less then I used for the review.

no results as of yet on for temps, but those will follow soon

I believe Teus has a tube of shin etsu G751 that I have send him to review @ [M]
Isn't he a (staff)memeber of [M]

He has the tube for quite some time...?

I'm a little confused?
