Talking Does Artic Silver 5 Ever Get Old?

Hey Guys,

I am getting ready to build over the Christmas Break. I have had a small tube of AS 5 standing up in my refrig for about 3 years. Does this stuff every get old? Can I still use it? I have plenty left over from my last build. Thanks!

If it's still liquid (or as close to being liquid as AS5 gets) it's all good. If it was dried out then no, it's in need of replacement.

LOL...We all have something left over from the last build....

I hear Tuniq tx2 is great a 2C diff from Silver Artic 5
And it is nonconductive in an electrical environment as such
I'll use that on the next build here soon
