I'm a big fan of IC Diamond. I use it on my CPU and GPU and they stay frosty.

Ka Boom.

The new Shin Etsu isn't out yet. But it will be a killer, check out the specs for X-23-7921-5. It'll be awesome to have something that spreads easy and has that much performance. No cure time, just pure win.

Linky

Edit: Actually in contact with a Mircosi rep to get a sample here in North America (10-15 applications) of this new paste. I'm hoping I can get through and try it out on my lapped i7 2600k.

Edit 2:

From worst to best Thermal conductivity:

W/m·K = Thermal Conductivity (higher is better)
mm2·K/W = Thermal resistance ( lower is better)
Pa·s = Viscosity (higher = more of a grease than a paste)
Name / W/m·K / mm2·K/W / Pa·s
G-776 / 1.3 / 7.4 / 58
G-765 / 2.9 / 17 / 250
G-777 / 3.1 / 21 / 172
G-750 / 3.5 / 16 / 300
G-775 / 3.6 / 25 / 500
G-751 / 4.5 / 17 / 420
X-23-7783D / 5.5 / 8.0 / 200
X23-7762 / 6.0 / 15 / 180
X23-7868-2d / 6.2 / 7.0 / 100
X23-7921-5 / 6.0 / 5.8 / 363

The three I find are best suited for CPU's are the 7783-D, 7868-2D (although very hard to apply and most likely not even that great) and the 7921. Only the 7921 has no cure time at all, and is probably a lot easier to apply than the other two (probably similar to the G-751).

PK-1 Still wins. I'd just like to see what happens when 7921 gets tested.
