thermal grease is OCZ Freeze.
Slipstreams are terrible on a heatsink because they have very low static pressure. Swap them out for some Yate Loons and you will probably see a nice drop in temps. or even a single 38MM fan.

Nearly any 120MM fan will have more static pressure then a slipstream so if you have any extras you can always test them to see the advantages. The Noctua fan that came with your cooler while worse then a Yate is still much better then a slipstream.



You can see they choke out badly while other fans do not.

They are pretty good fans when used in open air or as a case fan but on a rad or heatsink there are better choices. Ironically that graph is from xtremesystems by Vapor.
