Thread: 3-minute Arctic Silver storage tip

    3-minute Arctic Silver storage tip

    Arctic Silver warns to keep their product upright, so any separation stays at the back where it probably will never touch a processor. But how are us poor users supposed to achieve verticleness without calling on our powers of telekinesis? I kept mine in my computer cabinet propped up by a couple hard drives, but it kept falling over whenever I moved one. So I made a (very) quick fix.


    You can buy a box of these at any hardware store for $x. You can use a couple nails as well.

    Staple in wall:

    You probably only want to do this to a wall you don't care about. For walls that you do care about, use thumbtacks.

    AS in staple:

    So there you have it, folks, a 5-second fix for a problem that you won't have to worry about unless you literally don't touch your Silver for more than a month. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's come up with a fix for this. What do you guys do?

    Buy it only when I need it, and use it right away. Very good idea! Nice quick fix indeed.

    eh, or you could buy better thermal paste, like OCZ Freeze, Noctua NT-H1, or Tuniq TX-2. The Tuniq review has the results off all three of the compounds in it.
