Solved Arctic Silver 5 vs Arctic Cooling MX-4 Tags: Arctic Cooling Silver Components Last response: April 18, 2012 8:21 PM in Components Share precursoris April 18, 2012 3:04:50 PM I recently bought a new cpu cooler that says it works best with Arctic Cooling MX-4. I accidentally got Arctic Silver 5. Should I bother replacing the AS5 with MX-4, or will I get basically the same results? Also, I won't be overclocking.
