Thermal compound quality: AS5 vs Zalman

I posted about a week ago about getting my Zalman 9500 AT. I'd decided to get some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, but my heatsink/fan just arrived with a small tube of Zalman thermal paste in it. I'm having a hard time finding which is better since every site uses a different unit of measure. Please tell me if this is good and how it would compare to AS5. Thanks.

  1. I'd use the Arctic Silver if you have it, though realistically, there's not likely to be a huge difference anyways.
  2. ^+1. Also take a look at MX-2.
  3. Agreement with cjl. Read this:
