I can also attest that as5 is good and that's what I use. Toms Hardware did some very extensive testing on everything under the sun a while back. Here's the page with the results if you're curious:Results: Closed-Loop Liquid Cooler; High Mounting Pressure - Thermal Paste Comparison, Part Two: 39 Products Get Tested

AS5 is pretty high on that list. Some of the stuff up at the top has better scores but is usually impractical/expensive.
