  1. Coolermaster ThermalFusion 400 probably.

    They would perform near the same anway so it doesn't matter which one you get.#
  2. The Cooler Master ThermalFusion 400 has proven itself to be a leading contender in the world of thermal interface material. While I certainly haven't tested all of the different brands and types available, I've had my experience with some of the top names such as Arctic Silver 5, Arctic Silver Ceramique, OCZ Freeze, Thermalright Chill Factor and the Tuniq TX-2.
  3. I find that most thermal compounds are pretty close in performance and the key is the application of the compound. It has to be applied to the right thickness to give the compound the best opportunity to work correctly.
    I have used several differnt compounds and have not found one that is "THE BEST" and I actually continue to use Artic Silver 5 for no particular reason , maybe it's now just a habit. But if you just pick one and make sure that you apply it correctly.

    Just... DO NOT

    i repeat, DO NOT pick "ANY" thermal paste...

    So does thermal paste matter? Yes—there’s a big difference between thermal pastes when running a CPU at full burn. There’s a big difference between a thermal interface material that’s good for overclocking and those that aren’t..

    Why not get the Best performing paste, no matter how small the difference may be, when you are already willing to spend a few dollars.... :)

    As per you question div.j, go with Cooler Master thermal fusion 400 :)
