check out this review by hard forum. From what I have been reading, elsewhere to, AS5 is no longer on top.

I personally would go with OCZ Freeze because it doesn't require any curing time, and its quite inexpensive. Shin Etsu seems to be the top performer, but expensive.

Can you find MX-3 or ICD 7? They're nearly as good as Shin Etsu.

I prefer OCZ Freeze, Shin-Etsu X23-7783D, and IC7. OCZ Freeze is the most affordable and easily found of those, and IC7 the best performer AFAIK.
Agree with everything he said. I love IC7, and it doesnt break down over time like other TIM's do.

the noctua and the mx-3 both are advertised as have no curing times as well, but that isn't always accurate. I would go with the noctua, but really I think the deciding point should be benchmarks, and availability. I mean, most of them are priced roughly the same, so just look at the benchmarks. I would just see which one has the lowest temps when OC'd, and that has no curing time, and then see if I can find it anywhere.

It's pretty good, probably one of the top 3
