Contains 99.9% pure silver:
Arctic Silver 5 uses three unique shapes and sizes of pure silver
particles to maximize particle-to-particle contact area and thermal transfer.
Arctic Silver 5 contains over 88% thermally Conductive filler by
weight. In addition to micronized silver, Arctic Silver 5 also contains
sub-micron zinc oxide, aluminum oxide and boron nitride particles. These
thermally-enhanced ceramic particles improve the compound's performance and
Controlled Tripple-Phase Viscosity:
Arctic Silver 5 does not contain any silicone. The suspension
fluid is a proprietary mixture of advanced polysynthetic oils that work together
to provide three distinctive functional phases. As it comes from the tube,
Arctic Silver 5's consistency is engineered for easy application. During the
CPU's initial use, the compound thins out to enhance the filling of the
microscopic valleys and ensure the best physical contact between the heatsink
and the CPU core. Then the compound thickens slightly over the next 50 to 200
hours of use to its final consistency designed for long-term stability.
(This should not be confused with conventional phase change pads
that are pre-attached to many heatsinks. Those pads melt each time they get hot
then re-solidify when they cool. The viscosity changes that Arctic Silver 5 goes
through are much more subtle and ultimately much more effective.)
Not Electrically Conductive:
Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.
(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.)
Arctic Silver 5 will not separate, run, migrate, or bleed.

I used this thermal compound when replacing my stock CPU cooler on my i7 build two and half years ago. My Idle temperature dropped 30C degrees. Obviously this isn't just because of the Arctic Silver, but it did work perfectly and temperatures have been consistent ever since.
