The 650TX is cheaper and has more amps on the 12v rail(s) than the 520hx or Silencer 610.

You want Arctic silver 5 i believe.

Also the Arctic freezer 7 pros are excellent good priced coolers, other than that there are some medium/high ranged coolers that will give you a bit more cooling.

Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

AS5 isn't as good as the Thermal Pad on the AF7 (MX-2)

Thats a good HD, but you should get a 7200.11 HD instead because with their 32mb cache they are faster than that WD

and thats what I'm saying, no no on AS5

If you really want to pick up some paste for future use then grab some MX-2, but the cooler already has pre applied.
