I use a 14 Gram tube of Artic Allumina most of the time because I change CPU's so much and it's Ceramic so it's better for freezing. If I know the heat sink is going to be on for more then a month I use OCZ freeze because I gave my MX-2 to a friend thinking it was some junk that came with my EK blocks, lol.

I have a big tube of IC Diamond 24 that I got free from the EVGA Forums last year. It might be 1C better than the MX-2/3. I figured for free I would try it. Not sure I would buy it as it is rather expensive, but it does work quite well if you have access to it.

As far as the freezing using DICE etc. NG would know a lot more about that. I know some people like the AS Ceramique (SP?) for that, but I don't get into that type of setup so I can only go with what I've heard/read. It does place different demands on the TIM.

Yes sir Papa, any Ceramique will work so the the biggest cheapest tube is what you want to go after.

Whats that really thin silver TIM called? I saw some on a water block I got when I had a 5970 and was wondering what it was. It was kinda metallic like and very very thin. Also very easy to spread but stayed put.

That is way to hard to pin point. You just described about half the market.

Yeah, pretty much all of them are that... If installing on a GPU spreading it is good.
If installing on a cpu just a small dab about the size of a cooked grain of rice seems to be perfect.

The thin line method isnt bad, but I find the rice sized or a pea sized dab dead center to produce the perfect results and not be messy when removed...

But Allways Remember, NO AS-5 to mouth....
