I'm about to order thermal grease.

not sure which to get.. I want the BEST there is, i don't care how much it is.. (maybe a bit..)

It has to be from newegg.
I was thinking about OCZ freeze, but what do you guys think is the best? Is that the best?

Thank you

They are all so similar that it doesn't matter, any top shelf tim works fine. If you want the best and money is no issue goto your local jeweler and get diamond dust to mix in.

I would suggest Arctic Silver 5.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835100007
Google the product to find the instructions for using it... you only use a tiny bit....

The shin etsu is good as well i would think.... i repair servers and they send a syringe of shin etsu (just enough for 1 application). If it will work on a server that is up 24/7, then i would think it would be fine on a overclocked cpu....that is what i use on mine (since i have extras). Not sure if it is the exact same stuff but same manufacturer....

hehe

I don't like AS5, i think its a waste, because OCZ freeze seems to be much better and isn't much more expensive.

How about Prolimatechs PK-1 Nano, it has a thermal conductivity of 10W/-m C?

dumb question, but isn't a higher thermal conductivity better
