I have a 7 year old AS5 compound lying around and the Cooler Master Thermal paste that came with the EVO.

Are any below go really well with EVO HSF and 960T?

Shin Etsu G751
OCZ Freeze
TIM Consultants T-C Grease 0098
IC Seven Carat Diamond
MX2
AS5
Cooler Master EVO paste

Tuniq TX3 is the best, but why not just use what came with the cooler?

Is that a general popular consensus or is it like something from the fringes of the edge of the community?

As for your question, nothing wrong with it. Why not use aftermarket thermal paste?

It won't really make a difference. The range between the very best TCs and middle-of-the-pack ones isn't more than three degrees, and most fall within one or two degrees of each other. Save your money.

How about a paste that's great for overclocking? 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. Would this work on the EVO heatsink (CDC technology) and 960T CPU?
