Default Artic Silver Thermal compound

I have a small quantity of Artic Silver Heat sink compound...this stuff is very expensive and I want to contribute some of it to the members of the forum.....I have set aside about 10 grams of it to give away....it reduced temps in different applications quite abit compared to white thermal grease....I use it on my computer processer with great results...........All I ask is that if you request some dont be greedy!!!!..LOL....I want as many members to try this out.....and because of the customs problems...Canadian residents only please...(they might think its a bomb or something).

so whoever wants a sample Email me with how much you need...I did a whole Amplifier with barely half a gram


Cheers!!The DIRT®

Hey Joe! Great offer I'd like to take you up on enough to do a couple of processors if you don't mind, I run AMD exclusively and these little suckers get prety hot. Especially when you "push them a little".

Is this not a lot of work for 10 g? I mean the stuff is not REALLY expensive but about USD 15-20 in the right place and if you're splitting it up then even getting the smaller tubes of 3 g for USD 6-8 would be a larger qty.

This is an interesting thread -- what I am most interested in the electrical characteristics of Arctic Silver. Is it conductive? Does it become inductive under pressure?

Under normal circumstances the paste is not conductive but if the pressure applied is to high it will be. A little dangerous...

As for inductivity I have no idea. Check their web site:

http://www.arcticsilver.com/

It it fairly standard stuff and most suppliers have it if you look at computer suppliers as the paste is originally for CPUs IIRC.

Under normal conditions, i'd expect it to exhibit some capacitive characteristics. With higher voltages / mounting pressure, there will probably be some conduction.

UrSv....it is about 8 bucks US for 3 grams....thats 15 Can bucks...we are poor here in Canada hahaha...... and it does have some conductive properties thats what makes it so good....you dont spread this stuff on like peanut butter you have to watch that there isnt any on component leads...............I am not trying to market this stuff I was merely offering a gesture to members...I am a designer of electronic controls and I get some freebies now and again and I would rather give away what I`m not using because if you were married to my wife you would know why.... I have so much crap around she says it looks like store..LOL
