I bought it in the store i work at, so if i end up screwing it up, il just deliver it back, and grab a new xD

Will Arctic Silver 5 work with this card?

I would consider using something less/non conductive.

I've been using MX4 for a long time with no problem. It spreads very easily.

AS5 is conductive and I would be a little scared of it

"Not Electrically Conductive:
Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.
(While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths.)"

That's good to know. It's probably safe and if you're taking your time it shouldn't have an issue.

If you plan on doing it just google how to remove the heatsink. I usually found 1-2 guides and makes it much easier then guessing which screws need to be removed.

Alcohol or the Arcticlean kit.

I will see what i can find, hopefully my GF has something that can be used from her makeup kit or something xD


Edit 1: So i juist discovered that im out of AS5, and only have my old Antec Formula 7 left :/ Not sure how good that one is anymore, but if you think it will be better than the reference paste, i can begin shortly.

Edit 2: And it's been done.
Cleaned the old TIM, was quite hard to get it 100% of, but i managed.
Applied my Antec Formula 7, and it is not 1*C lower than before under Furmark and IDLE.
