Eh, Adobe Reader should be installed on every computer anyway. PDF files are pretty common.

if you go with any Arctic Silver TIM, you might wanna try the Arctic Silver Ceramique. I've used it on a slew of overclocked dual and quad core machines and it's worked very well. Very little cure time vs the AS5 which can take up to a week to cure properly. ASC is the way to go and it's about the same price as AS5.
