There really is no "best" thermal paste out there. All of the top pastes are within 1-3*C of eachother. In all reality, your application will affect your tempuratures more than which of the top 4 or 5 pastes you use.

I myself use Arctic Silver 5. It does the job well. It is what I have used since begining building computers and I always seem myself going back to it even though most members here call it an older and outdated paste.
