My System Specs

Default Best Bang/Buck Thermal Paste

It seems like theres always a time when you finally use up your last tube of thermal paste and don't know which to try out next I just finished using the last of my beloved OCZ Freeze and since they discontinued it I'm at a bit of a crossroads as to which thermal paste I should try next.
I'm not looking for the best paste possible but rather the best bang/buck. Used to get 3grams of freeze for 3$ but I see now that low pricing isn't exactly the norm.

How is AS5 with the cure time these days? And is the temp drop that significant, at almost $1/gram it seems to be a pretty decent deal Arctic Silver 5 HIGH-DENSITY Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound 12 Gram - DirectCanada. Are there any other types of paste that I should be looking at?
