    Re: thermal compound

    I also use AS5 - a little tube last for quite a while. But I must admit I am curious about the product mentioned here: http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.php?t=109262&page=7

    Re: thermal compound

    AS5 is good, though there are several compounds that seem to match it's performance.

    Still, untill somthing decively beats AS5, without bothersome side effects, I'm going to stick with it, as I know it's properties.

    Generic ceramic thermal grease. More than good enough for the job.
