I have a Zalman 9500 in my comp but I'm building a new one and I won't be transfering this HSF. I'll only overclock my E6550 to 2.8 Ghz. Should I use the remaining thermal paste from Zalman instead of the one that come preapplied on the intel HSF ?

or should I wait and get a AC Freezer 7 Pro (and using the paste that come with it) ?

Those charts are from 2004 and the temperatures could be different from the amount applied and ambient temps. Honestly I wouldnt use the stock stuff. I use Artic Silver 5. Temperature difference is probably only 2-4c different from stock. Almost every chart I tried to look shows different results from one another. So to answer your question, I would use the Zalman paste, and you can always remove it and replace it with different paste.
