What's the difference in Arctic Silver 3 and 5? I use 3 and I'm still getting low temps. Why should I buy 5?
Re: AS 5
Arctic Silver 5 will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed
>350,000W/m2 °C (0.001 inch layer)
<0.0045°C-in2/Watt (0.001 inch layer)
Average Particle Size:
<0.49 microns <0.000020 inch
Extended Temperature Limits:
Peak: –50°C to >180°C Long-Term: –50°C to 130°C
3 to 12 degrees centigrade lower CPU full load core temperatures than standard thermal compounds or thermal pads when measured with a calibrated thermal diode imbedded in the CPU core.
Arctic Silver 3 will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.
Thermal conductivity: >9.0 W/mK (Hot Wire Method Per MIL-C-47113)
Thermal Resistance: <0.005°C-in²/Watt (0.001 inch layer)
Extended temperature limits: – 40°C to >180°C
3 to 12 degrees centigrade lower CPU full load core temperatures than standard thermal compounds or thermal pads.
AS5 is a wee bit better at its job
