    There's one here. I don't think they do any others.

    No arctic silver for me then, at least not yet, was only a thing to tack onto the order anyway.

    Have you tried Shin-Etsu X23 ?

    It's definately worth it if you haven't

    Easily the best thermal paste i have used to date.

    A clip from the conclusion...

    "The best performer overall was the Shin-Etsu MicroSi X23-7804E3, followed by the WHITE greases (Ceramique, Radio Shack metal tube, Stars white)."


    You can't beat it

    Err, slight problems.

    1) That review is from 2003

    2) Arctic Silver isn't even in there

    3) Those are all white paste, arctic silver is SILVER.

    I remember a test some while ago with white, silver and all sorts of thermal paste, and Artic Silver 5 outperformed all of them.

    I couldnt find an up to date one...sorry. But believe me...shin etsu is good stuff.

    Artic silver is over hyped and doesn't have the best dieletric properties...imho anyway.

    Life is all about risks...try some shin etsu

    http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/.../index_3.shtml <-- another old review of the old shin etsu G751 beating AS3.

    The X23 is better than AS5 for all kinds of reasons in my humble opinion

    A quote from AMD where they mention a slighlty older incarnation of shin etsu..

    The issue of thermal pumpout was covered by AMD for XP processors in 2003"

    >>>For permanent installation AMD only recommends using phase change material with the heatsink/fan. No thermal grease is recommended for anything other than temporary evaluation purposes. And the only thermal grease recommended for that is Shin Etsu G 749. Artic Silver is made up of a matrix with conductive particles. There is the possibility of creating electrical shorts on the package. Any failed processor used w/ Artic Silver or any other thermal grease other than Shin Estu G 749 would be subject to warranty voiding. The concerns with other thermal greases are due to thermal pumpout causing overheating with on off cycling of the PC over time. The above information assumes you are referring to use with Athlon. For Opteron Shin Etsu G 749 also is the only thermal grease recommended for permanent installation. Again the concern is due to pumpout with thermal cycling.<<<
    Another AMD quote regarding the newer 64 processors...

    With the A64 processors AMD approved thermal compounds :




    >>>Thermal Interface Materials for AMD Opteron™ and AMD Athlon™ 64 Processors

    AMD evaluates thermal interface materials for use with its AMD Opteron™ and AMD Athlon™ 64 processors. A list of suggested materials is provided in the table below.


    Suggested Thermal Interface Materials Manufacturer Interface Material Material Type

    Bergquist TIC-3000 Grease
    Shin Etsu G751 Grease
    Shin Etsu X23-7762 Grease
    Shin Etsu X23-7783D Grease
    Thermoset, Lord CPD TC-350 Grease

    The heatsink makes contact with the top surface of the processor package utilizing the thermal interface material between the processor lid and the heatsink. AMD recommends using a high-performance grease such as those listed in the table above. AMD does not recommend using phase-change materials between the heatsink and the processor.

    Not even a proper Arctic silver on that test.
    The latest is Arctic silver 5 and you should go to the arctic silver webiste to read the reviews. There are some great instructions on fitting your hsf on the website as well.

    You can get it for a great price off of ebay.

    Note that AMD do not recommend using thermal grease and this could endanger the warranty. They prefer you to use thermal pads.

    PS OCZ is exactly the same product.

    Yup, that is an old test from before AS5 was released. The ShinEtsu is good stuff though, no doubt about it, its just pretty hard to get hold of. It actually ships with some heatsinks like Gigabytes Heatsinks.

    The Coolermaster Thermal Compound is actually made by ShinEtsu but to Coolermasters specifications. So if your gonna get any from Scan i'd get that. I wouldn't touch the Akaska.
