What is the problem with AC5? Is other AC types any better?

I found it actually helped by 1-2 degrees on my Barton, and by 2-3 degrees
on an older Palomino chip. This is comparing against the original factory
AMD thermal pad. Compared against my reapplying white thermal paste I don't
have data. I seem to remember some aussie's website where he did a test
using all kinds of thermal pastes as well as stuff like vegemite and
toothpaste. There wasn't a whole lot of difference.

Any properly applied paste is better than a pad.

Ordinary white paste will do fine.... There is nothing 'wrong' with AS5 it
is just too expensive.

Yes , unless you live in a trailer park then it might be a little too
costly.

The Rat Shack white paste does have long term problems. After years of use the
paste dries out to a flaky powder and is useless as a TIM. This is one area
where Arctic Silver shines, it doesn't break down after long term use.

But the system will be obsolete long before the paste dries out. Seems
like a waste to use a product that may last 10 years when the system is
likely to be scrapped after 3-5 years.

The Rat-shack white paste dried out after two years, not 10. Another factor to
consider is thermal pump-out, something Arctic Silver was expressly designed
not to do.

You are talking about Computers, everything we buy for it has a value
next day of 1 cent :).

So it does not matter realy we screw ourselves by buying pcs.

Oh well.

The only way it would dry out in 2 yeqars would be from daily turning it
on and off Or more than that. this will cause a lot k\more problems than
any paste ever would. left on most of the time it should last at least
5 years, unless the rat shack paste is really bad stuff. Don't recall ever
using theirs.
