I have some OCZ Ultra 5+ (It's Rebranded Arctic Silver) right now and it seems to work well, though I'll be trying out the OCZ Freeze stuff on Tuesday-ish and see how that goes.

MX-2 is supposed to be good, it's also non-conductive so you don't have to worry if you accidentally get some on the motherboard and don't realize it.

mx-2 or ocz freeze

artic silver will dry faster then the 2 others .... for the price MX-2 is the better choice.

OCZ Freeze is what I use. No curing time, pretty effective too.

Everyone has there own uses, but any of the highend ones mentioned are very good, within a half degree of each other in reviews.

I used to be a staunch AS5 man but MX-2 is my new fav, no cure time and not conductive.
