    Thermal Paste

    Hey guys,

    Just wondered what you thought the best thermal paste available from scan?

    Also what's the paste like that comes with the Scythe Mine?

    And if the paste the comes with the Miné is anything like the stuff that comes with the Scythe Infinity, I wouldn't use it.

    Would i be right in the presumption then that the most expensive one is better?

    Theres not much in it to be honest, also have a look for some stuff called OCZ ultra (might be called ultra 5), that is rebranded Arctic silver 5 for about half the price.
