AS5 is ever so slightly CAPACITIVE, not conductive.Under certain conditions, AS5 can conduct electricity, but MX-4 is a carbon based material that can be safely used without fear of frying components.
AS5 used to cause slight issues on Older athlon xps but thats when people got some on the pins or under the memory ect.. Ive been guilty if that when i was a kid but it doesnt fry electronics. Never seen that before.
The thing with MX4 and that noctura stuff is i read it runs.. and drips off the cpu or gpu die.. And it dries uo after a few mobths.. AS5 doesnt do that. So i was hestiant or ordering a new paste. Have you guys had any runny issues with MX4 or noctura.
Seems AS5 is junk now though current every review on amazon and newegg is showing its more of a bright silvery volor then a dark gray. And its oily and people sometimes get empty boxes or boxes where the tubes were clearly used.
Thats a bummer.. Lol
