LOL @ the use of cheese
MX-3 and a whole bunch of thermal pastes (but nothing from Shin-Etsu) are easy to find from NCIX and I find MX-3 is the best in terms of ease of use, availability and price....if it's on sale, however the older MX-2 counterpart is great too and might be cheaper.

Circumstances forced me to go inactive back in 2014. I guess I'm back for 2016, but won't be active much! Cheers!

A pea-sized drop in the center of the CPU's IHS, and that's all.

Dangit, I should have asked before picking up the AS5. XD

Will be installing the stuff tomorrow, so I guess I can always switch it later.
