Tags: Cooler Master Thermal Compound Evo Components Last response: May 2, 2012 8:31 PM in Components Share irsninja May 2, 2012 1:54:36 PM Was thinking about getting artic freeze but it's an extra $10 More about : worth buyingbetter thermal compound stock hyper 212 evo Ubrales May 2, 2012 2:01:22 PM Yes! Arctic Silver 5 is a great thermal compound. Personally, I would not rely on any thermal compound that came with the heatsink. Go with Arctic Silver 5, and use the application procedure from their website. http://www.arcticsilver.com/instructions.htm geekapproved May 2, 2012 2:16:54 PM The thermal compound that comes with it is just fine. As5 might give you a 1c difference, but I doubt it. As5 also takes over 100hrs to cure, which is why I never recommend it. There are better options that work just as well or better that require no cure at all. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
