Question Arctic Cooler Question.

Just bought this to OC my Venice Core 3500+. AMD does not recommend using Arctic Silver 5. Any Alternative suggestions or have any of you used AS5 on your AMD CPU's without negative results? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185125

that cpu cooler already has arctic coolings special thermal paste pre-applied. no need for as5. that cooler worked wonders on my 3200+. I can guarantee you wont be dissapointed! also, make sure you have a lot of room in your case for that coolier. its a behemeth! mine forced me to mount my window fan on the outside of the window its so big
