i quite like the as5 atm for me. but hopefully in the near future there will be another release by arctic silver series which will be even better than the cool labs and as5 easy to clean.

So which one would you recommend for a stock case with no ocing involved AS5 or the AS Ceramique? When first app;y AS5 and running the system for several hours before shutiing down for several more to start the bonding there the temps are up. This drops over the next 3 days of use. How long do you wait for the other?

What did you think you were going to find at "Rat Shack" as the nickname goes there? They simply relabel everything with RS and sell it as their own. I've seen their labeling on small tubes of AS5 as well as a long list of others.

I just ordered some Arctic Cooling MX-1. I found it for $7 here:
ARCTIC COOLING MX-1 Thermal Compound by: Arctic-Cooling - e Powerhouse

The sweetest part of the deal was being able to specify US Parcel Post as the shipper, so it was only $2.51 for the shipping. Plus, no tax like I have to pay with NewEgg.
