Arctic Silver 5 - temp issue

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello.

i just applied some AS5 compound to my AMD phenom 955 cooled by an H50.

My temps before the new compound were 27 degrees on idle. (with stock H50 compound)

Now im idling at 32 degrees.


Do you think the higher temps are caused by incorrectly using AS5? I used the dot application technique. (put a dot of AS5 about the size of 2 rice grains in the center of CPU then installed H50 on top of that)

or is it because the AS5 requires a break in period?

Thanks.

You know the stock paste that comes on the H50 is better than AS5 right? Its Shin Etsu

that's what I figured. Just wanted to make sure because 5 degrees seems significant.

The AC5 is decent itll probably drop 2-3 degrees when it cures. the Shin is only a degree or 2 better and also has curing time. You would probably get better temps with a second fan on the H50 than changing paste.

This. But the difference between AS5 and Shin Etsu isnt that much. The difference between about the top 5 paste are only about 2-3 degrees celcius.
