More about same thermal paste
  1. Yes you will be fine
    Don't apply to much,AS5 is Electrical Conductive
  2. wouldnt that make it dangerous?
  3. Only if you get it on the wrong parts ;)

    I always reapply paste to my GPUs as soon as I get them out of the box but I do not use conductive paste. I used to use Arctic Silver Ceramique but now I use IC Diamond.

    If you just ordered and can change the order i would get better paste
  5. yeah get better paste. as5 is old... Today people just get it because of its name. Even googling thermal paste shows as5 everywhere. I used to like it, but now there are better pastes to do.
  6. IC Diamond 7 is good. Cheap too.
  7. MX-2.
