This is kind of big... It has a gray pad where it comes in contact with CPU, i think this is thermal paste. I also have arctic silver 5.

Any guides on how to apply arctic silver 5 on a cpu?

remove the thermal pad (nail polish remover or any strong consentrate alcohol will get it off) then place a bb (or half a grain of rice) size bit of AS5 on the center of the heatsink (or the processor itself, it doesn't really matter that much) then firmly seat the heatsink. Although I've heard that the MX1 (the stuff that comes stock on it)that is even better than AS5 (plus it has no metal parts to it so it doesn't conduct electrcity at all) so I would suggest you just leave it on

Oh, because this "Arctic Silver 5" Sounds so popular nowadays lol... THX. I am going to make ramsinks for this GeForce 5500FX from my old sempron 3400+ stock heatsink. The fan I can somehow mount on card.... This Silver 5 stuff is a good adhesive and can hold a ramsink right? (After i cut the huge silver spreader into four equal parts)

no, i wouldn't use AS5 for that its not like a glue at all and won't hold the ramsinks on. There is a product by Arctic cooling that is an adhesive probably called Arctic adhesive, let me check

Actually that is not a pad, it's a paste called MX1 and is just as good as AS5. Don't touch it

The RAM sinks that came with my Zalman VF-700Cu stayed well with AS5. I thought AS5 wasn't supposed to dry up, but it did on the RAM sinks

Leave the MX1 paste on the cooler, clean off your CPU good, and just install the freezer 64.

Dont use both though since you already have thermal paste on the Freezer.
