Best thermal paste 2012? - Page 2

post #11 of 90
I have good luck with Arctic Silver Ceramique 2. I bought a tube of it a year ago, and I must have built about 10 systems with it so far and still have plenty left.

I'm told that coolaboratory liquid metal is the most conductive. For TIMs that aren't horrible to use, GC extreme and MX-4 are supposed to be very good. I have a syringe of MX-2, and it works very well.

Yeah, I've heard good things about the Coollaboratory Liquid Pro and Ultimate. I might give them a try the next time I get bored and tear down my cooling loop for cleaning.

Stuff isn't cheap though. The Ultra is like $19.99 for a thin needle full, and Pro is like $9.99.

Pretty cheap compared to your water cooling loop. I would try it, but I hear that it reacts forms an amalgam with your heat spreader, which may void your warranty.

I've actually bought a huge syringe of AS ceramique 2 a while ago and have been using it for all my builds. Recently I've gotten back into watercooling and bought some as5. I honestly can't see any difference. It's such a small diff, that it can be attributed to ambient temps.
