Something that would give me headroom for medium to heavy overclocking in the future. EDIT: I also found some old paste stored away. It's called the Arctic Silver Ceramique and Zalman Thermal Grease CSL 850. UPDATE: I have my eye on the Prolimatech PRO-PK1 now. Seems to be the best and costs the least, albiet with 1g.
