    I have used several, but I use Notcua NT-H1 now. I seem to have good results with it and like the way it spreads.

    Got some of that too with a Notcua air cooler seemed to do pretty good :)

    I still own some Liquid Ultra. I used it once. As I recall it was lower, but not really worthwhile. Especially when you tried to remove it. Impossible without some sandpaper. I wore their "brillo pad" out. It really wasn't any lower than what I was using at the time, Arctic Silver as I recall. To me 2-3 is within the margin of error with my non scientific tests.

    Arctic Silver was recommended to me years ago and I have never used anything else :)

    @Stephanie, it is a very good quality thermal paste. It's a good choice.

    Good thing someone mentioned this i was wondering what it's like after you used it many says it has beads of metal in it so you have to be super careful or you'll short some stuff out

    To me that sounds like a Big Risk for something that doesn't do any better than standard paste some swear they see a 20c drop in temps
