Arctic Silver 5 does have curing time, and from what I've read you can expect a large temperature drop as it cures. However, reading H50 reviews they say that the pre-applied paste is actually better than AS5, so that could be a reason too.

AS5 has a cure time, it also has to be cycled from hot to cold during that cure time, it needs to be on/off every 12 or so hours over a 200 hour period of time, soo 100 hours on, 100 off, just alternate em.

Surprised AS hasn't come out with a new paste to beat the others out....

That's because AS5 is crap. Even fully cured it's a poor thermal interface compared to other products.

Sean, compared to the old paste you had, AS5 performs poorly, if you want better temps, you need to get a higher quality compound, and clean the **** out of your heatsink and processor to get AS5 out of the microscopic surfaces as best as possible. -.-

For the price you can't beat the Tuniq TX-2
Newegg.com - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound

thermal paste to be exact... not tape.

the stock paste H50 has on is Shin-Etsu, don't remember what model, one of the best on the market currently.

i went to Frys and got some Shin etsu

k so i put a dollop in the middle of the CPU and just put the cooler on... old idle temp ( artic silver ) was 41C, now its 34C. thats pretty substantial. and my room is 78F.

shine etsu > AS5
