I have no plan to get Shi Etsu paste yet.

I fear this would be the same situation for both of my HD6970. So I'll leave them alone for now.

The stock paste is not shin etsu:

The copper cold plate measures 60x52mm and comes pre-applied with Dow-Corning thermal paste. The thermal paste is actually very high quality as we will find out later on. In fact, Intel bundle the same thermal paste with their high end i7 990x Extreme Edition CPU. The base doesn’t have a mirror finish but it is still adequately flat to create good contact with the CPU for optimal heat transfer.

Same paste as all the other Hx0 units.

Was not happy with MX-4 either. AS5 still better for me.

I have made a turorial on how to do this. Don't follow my mistake and take the heatsink off again once you have put the compound on!
