Question What Thermal Compound should I get ?

I've been looking at some TC latley and I cam across the MX-2 and the AS 5. Does anyone know what the best one is out of the two ?

MX-2

They all work about the same.

Get the MX-2. It's cheaper.

Get MX-2. Not only is it cheaper, it doesn't need a curing time and isn't conductive. It gives you slightly better temperatures than AS-5.
