Categories > Thermal Compound / Grease > DEEPCOOL > Deepcool Z5 High thermal conductivity Non-Electricity Conductive High-Density&Stable polysynthetic compound 3g

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Much better than the pre applied stock grease on most heat sinks,
Pros: Easy to apply with the plastic tool included in the package. Thermal paste is a must when using new heat sinks. It's better than the stock grease on most heat sinks.
Cons: None, it works great.
Other Thoughts: Apply a pea size dot in the middle and a slightly smaller dot towards the bottom and top. spread evenly with the tool.

Categories > Thermal Compound / Grease > GELID Solutions Ltd. > GELID Solutions GC-Extreme Thermal Compound

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 This is the thermal paste that the collective consciousness of the Internet reccomended to me.
Pros: I assumed Arctic Silver was the go-to thermal paste for all your thermal paste needs. I consulted the Internet to confirm this, and was corrected. The Internet has spoken, and Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme is "...probably the best thermal paste you can buy right now."
Cons: What cons?

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Quality paste
Pros: Unlike most thermal pastes Arctic MX-4 allows for easy removal of the cpu cooler and doesn't dry out and cake up which is a must for me.
Cons: A bit overpriced but worth the extra $

Categories > Thermal Compound / Grease > ARCTIC COOLING > ARCTIC MX-4 (4g) Carbon-Based Thermal Compound, Non-Electricity Conductive, Non-Capacitive

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good stuff!
Pros: -Nice applicator with a generous amount of compound
-Flows easily and has a slightly lower viscosity than other thermal pastes
-Got temps comparable to AS 5
-Cleans up easily
-NON-CONDUCTIVE! this is important, see cons
Cons: -It's very stringy, after dispensing there is always a long thin string of this stuff between the applicator tip and the CPU as I pull the applicator away. I thought it was conductive and freaked out/engaged in a furious cleaning session after the string collapsed onto the MB near the CPU socket. Same issue when removing an old heatsink after using this, a lot of stringy lines between the HS and CPU that collapse and make a mess.
Other Thoughts: -Overall a nice product. Very good value for the quantity and performance. Cleans up easy, which is nice because it also tends to make a mess, but would highly recommend this compound.

Categories > Thermal Compound / Grease > Arctic Silver > Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Quite simply, the best thermal compound I've ever used.
Pros: -5-7c cooler load temps
-cooler cpu temps lead to overall cooler temps
Cons: -Takes FOREVER to cure
-High silver content makes this compound conductive (not for beginners)
Other Thoughts: Upgraded from ac ceramique 2. the ceramique definitely works well, but nothing compares to this compound. This compound alone allowed me to reach safe temps while overclocking and is also very effective at cooling gpus.

The two downsides to this paste are its cure time and conductivity. I didn't really notice a difference for the first couple days from the ceramique. For an impatient individual this could be a deal breaker. The conductivity is also another issue. Since the silver content in this compound is so high it can become conductive and hence short out equipment if you're not careful. Because of this level of conductivity I definitely wouldn't recommend this to a beginner.

For someone with a bit more experience though this is simply one of the best compounds available. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to overclock.

GPU: Radeon 5770 FLEX Edition
