Solved Arctic silver 5? Tags: Heatsinks Cooler Master Arctic Silver Overclocking Product Last response: February 28, 2011 2:19 AM in Overclocking Share soloby February 9, 2011 11:12:00 PM I was thinking about getting an i5-2500k to oc, and the cpu cooler i chose is the cooler master hyper 212. I know it comes with a thermal paste of its own, is that one any good? Any dramatic difference(~$10) between that and arctic silver 5? I'm only going to over clock it to 3.8~4.0 ghz More about : arctic silver Best solution JackNaylorPE a c 125 K Overclocking February 9, 2011 11:22:59 PM AS5 requires 200 hours of cure time (See AS5 website).
