Any difference in included thermal grease vs Arctic Silver? Tags: CPUs Cooling Arctic Silver Last response: August 16, 2010 2:42 AM in CPUs Share bapc August 16, 2010 2:04:41 AM I'm shopping around for a CPU cooler for a 1156 motherboard / i7-870, and I'm interested in the Thermaltake 1156 Silent cooler. I noticed that thermal grease is included in the package (in the past there was none). Is this grease basically the same as Arctic Silver quality?

You could just use that it if you don't have a tube of AS5 handy though, see if you like the temps. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Unfortunately I don't have any around.... last time I build a PC was back in like 2003. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
