My System Specs

Default Indigo Xtreme worth it over MX-3?

So as the title states, is Indigo Xtreme worth it over MX-3 (or any other paste you recommend)?

I'm curious since I'll be tearing apart my loop in a month or two, so I'm starting to stockpile stuff. If it'll drop a few degrees off my CPU, then I'm game.

Alternatively, I was looking at that IC 24 Carat Diamond paste, but it's only 4.5W/mK where as MX-3 is 8.3W/mK. Then there's Tuniq TX-4 and Prolimatech PK-1.

I don't know, so many choices...

And for reference, I have an i7 920 D0 @ 4.2GHz (maybe more), with a Heatkiller Nickel Plated block from Daz.
