alright i hear everyonr using it, but thermal pastes is never a category i really search everyday on newegg, so im not familiar with it. i looked today and i saw all these ones that were expensivve but i dont know if price has anything to do with quality.

the OCZ stuff on newegg is the same chemical composition and costs a few bucks less. Arctic Silver charges mores for the name. They are both composed of the SAME INGREDIENTS. So some of you boys yelling "Arctic Silver 5 is the best" can just shut up.

I've only used the stock thermal paste and AS5. After using AS5 my temps dropped quite nicely. *me shutting up*

I just got told. I'd check this crap if I wasn't using 600 mhz of raw computing power. This laptop blows. You guys remember when 128mb of ram was normal? Yeah, I'm dealing with it. I have to restart every 30 minutes.
