Finally getting some good stuff after using generic best buy crap for a year. Was going to get OCZ freeze but I figured I'd see what everyone else thinks first. I'll be using whatever I buy on my CPU and GPU. Cost doesn't matter.

I was gonna say MX-3 but didn't see it on your list. Guess NE doesn't carry them (Performance PC has it for $14). So out of all that, OCZ Freeze.

Currently I'm using MX-2 and couldn't be happier with the temps and will probably try that newer MX-3 on my next build.

I've used AS and OCZ freeze.

OCZ freeze is my favorite of the two. Used it on my CPU and GPU. Great temps all around.

No waiting time for it to prime, gotta love that.

From what I read on international the Zalman ZM-STG2 is one of the best out there. OCZ Freeze would be a close second.

OCZ Freeze FTW. Non-conductive and full of sticky awesomeness that comes out of the small tube.

I used to use AS5 on everything until I used OCZ Freeze. OCZ Freeze is the one to get.
