Why do people still buy AS5? MX-2 is better in every way and cheaper.

What are you talking about? MX-3 outperforms MX-2. The biggest gripe about it was that it was thick even though its probably no thicker than AS5. MX-4 just has the same consistency as MX-2 with the performance of MX-3. Even though in my experience I don't see a difference and MX-2 is cheap so I stick with that. You can buy all of the underperforming expensive tim that you want.

If you read my reply to Post carefully, you'd realize that I said nothing of the sort: I said it was touted to be far superior (by the Manufacturers).........

used the SHinetsu x23 on my old opteron 165 build - was great, my temps with stock HS were not poor compared to those with the BigTornado etc.

but I used Noctua's stuff from my HS - thats actually really good too

nbut if U can get it, get the Shin Etsu

I was responding to the bs in the rest of that post as well, maybe you should carefully reread the post that you quoted and maybe a review. rolleyes.gif
