Introduction

I have heard so many things about Artic Silver II, so I just had to try it out myself. Arctic Silver II is one of the best, if not the best thermal compound solution out on the market today. Arctic Silver II contains pure micronized silver. Meaning, little itty bits of super fine silver. Today we will test the Artic Silver II against another type of compound and see how they perform.


Features/Testing

Arctic Silver II
Made with 99.8% pure micronized silver
8.0 W/m*K
78% to 82% silver content by weight
Negligible electrical conductivity
Applicable for all size CPU's

We tested the thermal compounds on a 700@950mhz Duron 1.75V and a GlobalWin FOP-38 cooler with the Delta 7k RPM fan. The full load tests was done by running SETI@home in the background and running Quake3 demos in a loop.

So there you have it, Artic Silver II has been advertised as the best and it IS the best. I was able to run my cpu 700@980mhz 1.80V Stable, from the cooling gain that Artic Silver II offered.

Conclusion

I have no hesitation in recommending this product to anyone. Artic Silver II is promoted as the best and IS the best. Surf on over to EverythingConnected.com
