Actually the best thermal paste is Artic Silver 5!

Was the best. Tuniq TX-2 beats it in tests by a very small amount. AS5 is still an excellent choice but it tends to cost a bit more than the TX-2.

The cheap kind. It makes so little difference it's really not worth the money unless you get it for free or already have it laying around.

I use Ceramique - you get loads, it's cheaper than AS5, and I only lose 1*c under load :)

Though I use Ceramique as a non-cheap alternative that does the trick.

 

But Marmite is meant to be quite good ... :lol:

i have been using this:

Shin Etsu X23-7783D

my results seem to match what the testing shows.

a few degrees cooler.

 

You know I have about 200 .5g syringes of some Shin Etsu, though I don't know if its that same stuff. Seems to work pretty good. :D

i use artic mx-2, i think its better than the artic silver five, its non conductive and its not as thick.. idk, but really with most high quality ones i bet there is only a mininal loss of celsuis temps if you apply it properly

I've been using the same couple tubes of silver/copper crap that has come with my GeIL memory over the years. :P
