Which one? About to buy in 15-20 minutes.

I've been using Arctic Silver 5 since I started building computers and decided it's time to move on. Any reviews would be really helpful.

MX-4 is more well known, but CF3 comes with Silver Arrow and Archon doesn't it?

I would say buy whatever is cheaper, they perform around the same.

However i think mx-4 is better, due to mx4 is ever so slightly better than artic silver 5.

That is the original chill factor..this is chill factor 3.

Edit: Went ahead with MX-4 for $12 shipped.
