Will look for the one that came with the H50 and apply it. I couldn't find it atm so I just applied the AS5 from all I've read 3 years ago... AS5 used to be good I thought.

I was surprised that no one else in this thread before you referred to the fact that the temperatures between AMD and Intel are not measured at the same point.

Well i was having the same problem as the other guy... 50C at bios reading temp... its too late for me, but now hes using AS5 as i am too. hopefulyl when i install OS and check it, its only like 30-40.

The shin etsu is on the heatsink from the factory, it doesn't need to be applied and there's nothing for you to apply if you've already removed it.

I removed it because i thought i placed the heatsink wrong.

then i used AS5 to put it back on.

ah that's right I remember... since i've moved it around so many times that's why iw as using AS5 since its the only thing I got. I guess I'll shop around for new thermal paste.

Which one do you recommend in the cheap/good range?

I use MX2, I think. Or MX3/MX4. Just pick the cheapest of those or keep the AS5, doesn't mean anything. Really, the two degree difference is negligible and in fact impossible to prove. IMO it's just awesome to have the best stuff if you're getting it for free anyway, so sad to see you throw away the Shin Etsu.
