The Silver has the Highest thermal conductivity of all the others material. AS5 has 99.99% of Pure silver, So... you get my point.

it's the greatest thing since sliced bread...

basically it is a 2 part solution to clean and prep. the first bottle literally disloves any thermal material on your heatsinks or dies. the second one purifies the surface to prepare for reaplication of thermal material.

I got some and I will never go back to rubbing alcohol. it's that good, worth every penny. you can usually get it for about $10. shipped.

also, get some coffee filters to use with it as they are cheap lint-free clothes

And I will most likely always use it.
i bought AS5 nearly 8 months ago, and have used it in all my computer builds, repairs, and general tweaks. It still shows no sign of running out after 30+ uses.

No, it is just a surface cleaner. It removes all the old paste COMPLETELY and preps the surface for new paste. It does not smooth the surface.
