OCZ Freeze.

Around the same performance, no curing period, non conductive but just in a smaller tube.

Depending on the cooler, it may come with thermal paste.

From what I hear and see on reviews, this stuff is actually better. Holysky got some, so ask him how it's doing.

Damn lol


yea i don't have any experience with mx-2 but this stuff owns arctic silver 5

dropped temps buy i think an extra 5 or 6 degrees which can make it or break it for over clocks

keeps my HOT pentium D at 30 idle would be like 36 or 37 with AS5

You could try ordering the thermal compound from another website with your CPU Cooler. Petra's shop and FronzeCPU are good with accessories from what I heard.
