Question What is the best heatsink thermal compound?

Still working on that PS3 . Now I have a question: What is the best heatsink thermal compound? I heard good things about Arctic Silver, if this is the best, which should I get? I need something preferably above 9.24 w/m degrees Celsius (I think) in thermal conductivity. I need something really high-performance so the PS3 hopefully won't ylod again. Please give me your advice and opinions.

I can't say what is definitely the best, but I really like Noctua's compound. It's always worked great for me.

Shin etsu is definitely the best for GPU cooling, but it doesn'tseem to perform as well on a CPU. I guess it kinda depends on where you are using it. Arctic silver 5 is always a good choice.

Ok. I'm putting the compound on both the GPU and CPU on the PS3. If you have one, you would be wise to replace the factory compound with some better stuff.
Everyone else:
Keep posting!
