I'll tell you. Thermal paste all the top well known brands. Just pick the one you can afford. The difference between them is negligible.

I have used many through the years. Right now I'm using AS -5.

I have not seen much difference using different quality thermal paste.

You will see a difference if you apply to much paste.

I've seen allegations that the diamond stuff can deface the CPU and therefore may affect the likelihood of a successful RMA if you have a defective CPU.

I have no idea how true that is.

I've always used Arctic Silver 5. I wouldn't agonize over the thermal paste at all unless I was straining for the fastest possible overclock.

I only tend to use 2 and performance varies

Arctic Silver by far one of the best and Antec 6 or 7 Nano Diamond compound
