they are saying not conducting electricity, but conducting heat... cause silver has a very low specific heat... however i don't know how they made it non electrically conductive.

While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths

btw that came straight rom as5's website
