But yeah, its a classic IMO.

I'm not saying you should swap out your paste. I'm saying there's no reason to order more of it when there's better stuff available. If you have some left, by all means use it up.

Well it's only $7 for tube I got so if there is something that much better than as5 that isn't like $20 a tube, I'll order that as it's too late to cancel order

Trust me, I basically am expecting EA to completely ruin the franchise. Don't see how your gonna do a "smaller" build as the hero is a Atx. You maybe mean the gene Z matx or the formula uATX?
post #15 of 19
smaller than a eATX Formula or Extreme board, and not in a 800/900D monster tower, something like a 450D or fractal arc midi.

but yeah a gene build would be awesome too, and watercool everything and jam it in the smallest possible case biggrin.gif!

Ahh, I always forget about the eATX as it's pretty rare. You want something like dis?

If it's too late to cancel the order, just go ahead and use it. AS5 isn't the best thermal paste anymore, but it still gets the job done.

Their Ceramique 2 product performs as well as AS5 and costs less, but AS5 still has this "legendary" aura about it years after it has been surpassed.

Sorry to hear frown.gif As they say, nothing gets you over the last one like the next one. Nice build you got going there. Those evos apparently are lightning quick. When are we getting some benches?
