I found this on Newegg for pretty cheap.  Do you think it will extend the life of my cpu?  I even have some Arctic Silver laying around.  Running 3dMark I get 50 degrees as my max and 33 degrees as my idle.

The wraith cooler is actually very good for stock , it delivers great performance for something that comes with the CPU.

If not overclocking dont bother, save your cooler for something else.

 

Here is a video about its performance:

 

 

and comparing the spire to a hyper212:

Would it be worth it to use Arctic Silver instead of the stock paste?  How many degrees difference would it make?

Probably no difference, but you can use the AS5 if you ever have to refit the cooler.  The OEM stuff is probably Shin Etsu, Dow Corning or something like that, supplied in industrial quantities..

Actually Silver paste would have a better transfer rate for the heat to get to the heatsink and with lower thermal resistance, the effects are marginal until you really start to apply the pressure. The Cooler Master shown seems to haver the heat pipes running through the radiator fins purely for effect, afterall, are they filled with a cooling liquid ? and is that liquid being pumped through a system either utilising heat and gravity and/or a forced pump ? Doesn't look like it. Looks like it is to appeal to someone who would like a multi-dollar liquid cooled system but can't yet stretch that far . IMHO.

If the heat pipes don't contain liquid, it's not going to be very effective. They generally do - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe

So where is the reservoir ?....judging by the looks - and the price - there must be the worlds smallest closed-loop reservoir system going on. What liquid would you suggest it is filled with ? And the boilng point of that liquid ?

As your Wiki knowledge states that copper is used in conjuction with water (for obvious reasons - except oxidisation) and the boiling point of water being approx 100C (thats kettles for you) then are you also suggesting that the CPU is running at 100C ALL THE TIME IT IS IN USE - because that WOULD have to be the case to ensure optimal heat-pipe transfer

 

Physics.

 

And sales teams always tell the truth  Never distort true Physical reality for a quick buck from the uninitiated ?

There's more information about that in the link. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pipe#Heat_transfer

Do you know what the IDC is on Cardiff Bay ? You live in Wales so you may know ?
