Default Thermal Grease @ Newegg.com

Any word on when newegg is going to be getting some more mx-1 or other high end thermal pastes in stock? I'm planning on building in mid-Aug and was hoping to have something a little higher end than AS5 (or is this just splitting hairs here)? Thanks fellas.

That is splitting hairs worrying a lot over getting MX-1 or MX-2 thermal grease however it's still nice to have. In august MX-2 should be the one thats going to be out and good so look for it.

Reviews have said the MX-2 is better than MX-1 by a degree or two. So if it's better than MX-1, then it is either equal to that of Cool Labs or better.

is 1 tube at 2 grams enough thermal paste for my system build? What do I use thermal paste on besides the HSF?
