Which thermal compound?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey has anyone used the Zalman thermal grease? i've got these two thermal compounds here and am debating which one to use. one is a noname thermal compound with the following specs:

Thermal Conductivity : >7.5W/m.k
Thermal Resistance: < 0.06 C-in squared/ W
10% silver

The other is that Zalman thermal grease they seem to include with their coolers. what do u guys think? the most notable difference to me is that one is a paste the other is like an oily stuff.

The Zalman grease is probably better than the no-name, but you'll be much better off by picking up a tube of Acrtic Silver 5. It's the best out there, and for good reason. A small tube will last years, too.
