actually if you read any of the reviews shin-etsu and as5 are all of equal quality its more a personal preferance. I use as5 and shin both and they both give me the same results.

how did you apply the paste??

I didnt apply any thermal paste on the current one, I just used the pre-applied one that came with the cooler, anyway I just received an e-mail that my replacement cooler have been delivered so I should update you guys with the results tonight.

actually I did read a thread about both of them, in this board and by reading the posts and replies the majority are saying the Shinetsu is better, however since both of them are equal, Im just gonna save the thermal paste for future use, or if I didnt see any change after installing the new one tonight.

OK Guys, I just finished re-installing my OS, and the Antec 920.

Now first of all, finally the software started running, so to all the people who tried fixing the problem and going through all the steps on the other thread in this board regarding USB connection with no results.... go and replace the cooler its mostly a usb cable faulty or sort of that wink.gif

now back to my idle temperature, right now after 30mins just installing software's and downloading updates, Im averaging 28C thumb.gif
compared to the one I replaced which was 38C, not too far from my stock heatsink which was 42C.

BIG THANKS to all who contributed in this thread and offered suggestions and help, you guys ROCK thumb.gif
