I don't have a quad core, but I have been using ceramique by arctic silver for years, and I run ~25 degrees C under load with my zalman. With the stock paste, I run about 30 (acceptable, but 25 is better )

The difference between arctic silver and their ceramique is the silver in the compound replaces the ceramic in the ceramique. It's cheaper, which is why I have a ton of it for builds. Cheap + effective = winning. Arctic silver supposedly out-performs ceramique, but I haven't used it on my personal builds

RE the article Essenbe posted, I wouldn't "tint" the cooler as they said. That is a good way to introduce air bubbles and uneven spreading.

No offense taken. But I always tint mine. It works.
