To be honest i think xigmatek makes better coolers, im running this bad boy:

Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1284EE 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks
dont like TX-2 that much? It's better then the MX-2 right?

heatsink looks very familar to the Core Contact.

i dont like the thinness (new word) of the TX-2 myself.
i like the feel of artic silver 5 as it seems to be the perfect thickness for my tastes, i have not used MX-2 yet.

sticky little bugger it is and hard to get off ur fingers. Lower temps good, but TX-2 should do better.

I don't see a reason not to like Tx-2.. I have used it on a couple of cpu's and a graphics card and have been happy with the results. My cooler came with Mx-2 originally unfortunately when i put tx-2 on it I also switched cases so I can't compare temps.

I haven't used as5 and plan to keep it that way. The fact that is more expensive, cools worse, and has a burn in period doesn't make it very appealing

I'm not picky when it comes to thermal paste. I get whatever is cheapest...I have some Xigmatek here that I got for cheap and it works great.

hmm what are your temps at idle and load along with your set fan speed? I heard auto control is too slow to react to changes in temp but I'm weary to just set it to a particular % like 50 because it may need more fan speed if it gets hot. I wish there was a way to have it on auto control but set it at a minimum %. My air flow in my case isn't really good and my room is kind of hot, so far my temps are like 58 idle and 70-75 load, which is great compared to my 8800 gtx which idled at like 65 and load was 85-90.

also it seems like no one really OCs the memory clock too much? I guess the 9 series is different compared to the 8 series and the memory clock can't be pushed far?

youre puting too much thought to it.

Set the fan speed to 50%, stress your card and see how high the temps go. if its too hot for your taste, turn it up to 55, or 60, and repeat untill satisfied.
