I posted a thread in the SL a while back about thermal pastes. Mx-2 was rated A- for professional grade use. All thermals pastes are practically the same. It's the surface that determines what paste is best for use.

I use Shin-Etsu X23-7783D now and am pretty impressed, it dropped my temps a few degrees when I stripped off the old AS5 and applied it, it's really thick though and hard to apply...
