tuniq tx-2 is good but for me ill go with shin etsu G751 but shin etsu is pretty thick/rich its harder to spread around and it takes about 3 days to settle in but its the best out there so get the blow dryer ready if you are going to use shin etsu

well this way he can upgrade in steps since the am2/am2+ use the same socket. next he can do mobo/ram and by the time he is ready for a proc again the phenoms will be cheap
