Manhattan Thermal Grease vs AVE Thermal Compound

Hi, I've been getting high temperatures on my CPU (Intel Core i5 3570k) so I will reapply thermal paste.
I live in Cuba and these are the only brands available here (Manhattan and AVE).
These are links to those products:

AVE: http://www.xsfans.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=90

Manhattan: http://www.manhattan-products.com/cpu-thermal-grease

In your opinion which one should I use?
I apologize for my english.
Thanks in advance.

I've just found another thermal grease the Evercool Sidewinder STC-01 is available here.

Sidewinder STC-01: http://www.evercool.com.tw/categories/global/accessory/peripherals/stc-01/sidewinder.html

What do you think of this one, compared to the others?

    its not what you use so much as how you use it.properly applied i doubt you will get more than a degree or two difference in temps between any of the major brands.i use whatever is at my local computer store.

    The evercool has better reviews than the other 2 you mentioned before. It's not artic silver but definitely better than the other 2 :)

    Where did you find reviews about these brands? Because I've been googling a lot and haven't found any decent reviews of any of these brands. Could you please post the links to these reviews?
  5. I couldn't find anything on the AVE or the Manhattan, but the Evercool Sidewinder falls about midway between mayo and mustard, its alright but not great, but from the best thermal paste to the worst thermal paste HW Secrets tried there was only a 7C difference, the Evercool was about 5C above the best paste
