    +1 on the AC MX-4, switched to this stuff long time ago from AS5.

    By the way, are you using a stock cooler on that Phenom II X4?

    Artic silver or one of their non-conductive derivatives,... I've used Ceramique in the past and will be trying Ceramique 2 on my new FX 6300 next month.

    Just finished my only god knows how old tube of Artic Silver after latest cleaning.

    Looks like hardware secrets did a major comparison, my next tube is gonna either be Tuniq or Prolimatech, they beat Artic by 1 degree and don't need curing time.
