    My Freezer pro came with pre-applied thermal paste. It works fine at the moment, but apparently takes quite a long time of usage to 'cure' and get even better. I used nail varnish remover (these are either acetone or isoproyl alchohol based) and a cotton bud.

    You're better off buying AS5 regardless, it's only a small price to pay, it's incredible stuff and it'll last you years.

    Yeah, I have a Thermalright XP-120 in my Centurion 5, I was looking into the TR Ultra-120, it looks like a beast of a cooler, but it looks a bit big, not sure if it would fit in your case/motherboard combo.

    These are at very different ends of the cooling capability spectrum, with the Tuniq Tower out coolng the Noctua by quite a wide margin.

    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 is a better cooler and a cheaper cooler than the Noctua IMHO.
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
