Hey all. Up until now I have been using thermal pads as the TIM between heatsink and CPU. I now want to try some Arctic Silver 5. Although I have some questions. Is arctic silver 5 better than a thermal pad? Is it safe to use on an Athlon XP 2700+ (2.16GHz) MSI 6800GT GPU I'm sure it would be pretty safe although I just need some reassurance. The main question is, would it be safe to use on the RAM chips of my 6800GT. I have heard arctic silver 5 could be troublesome on RAM chips. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers.
