Anyone used "Noctua NT-H1" on their heat sink I ordered arctic silver 5 but I hear that Noctua's tim is just as good and doesn't need cure time.

Honestly, both are quite good. I wouldn't be that concerned either way.

Yeah I got both being shipped to me now, just wanted to know if they are mostly equal then I will go with the NT-H1 b/c the no cure time.

+1 what cjl said.

For the typical user/gamer a difference of 2 or 3 or 4 degrees celsius will not make any difference. Most users/gamers do not have their systems running anywhere near the maximum heatloads for their cpu's. It would matter to a hardcore enthusiast trying to push a system beyond normal limits.
