Artic Silver 5 is the best i've ever seen and used. Remember though the thinner the layer you get on the better.

Ive heard that arctic ceramique is actually better than AS5 if you get the mixture right but apparently getting that just right is difficult.
Is this true or was my friend just talking crap?
