Can you guys tell me which is the BEST performing thermal paste to be applied on GPUs? I will apply it on my GTX 670, not the CPU. BTW trust me I know how to do it as I have done it on many occasions in the past.
Is Arctic Silver 5 best for applying to GPUs or something else? How about Arctic MX 4?? I'm confused
Thanks : )

The reason you shouldn't use Arctic Silver 5 is it's conductive i recommend you use Arctic Cooling MX-4 i've used it for gpu's in the past it works great.
Arctic Cooling—not to be confused with Arctic Silver, which also makes thermal pastes—distributes several thermal pastes in addition to its lineup of CPU and GPU coolers. MX-4 is a non-metallic carbon-based gray compound that doesn’t conduct electricity.
theres no point of re-applying thermal paste on a 670. if you got something from gigabyte, msi, or asus, it already runs cool enough
as for thermal pate, i use the noctua nt-h1 but then mx-4 is also good. get the cheaper one of the 2. dont know why silver 5 is relevant any more
