What is a good thermal paste these days

Running out of my favorite OCZ Freeze that was rated A or very good for overclocking , it needed no cure time which is a big plus for me and easy to apply and clean . Unfortunately they no ,longer make it and I'm down to the last few drops , what's a good replacement ?
Must be easy to apply /clean , have no cure time , don't want to have to wait 50 - 200 hours to know if it's working well , also want it to last years witout needing replacement
Thanks

  1. I use Arctic Cooling MX-2, needs no curing time, non-conductive, and the website claims 8 years durability (I've had 2 year old MX-2 on my video card and temperatures are still good).

  3. I recommend ARCTIC COOLING MX-4. I am also going to buy it. I have written to ARCTIC technical support some time ago and asked them which they recommend, they said MX-4.
    I think it is a good product. Also lasts for 8 years they say. I also asked around in forums about MX-4, everybody said it is a great paste.....
  4. Thanks guys same 1c less than the top warranty canceling pastes , which is where OCZ was rated back when . Think Ill get tim tronics 4200 , looks just like the OCZ freeze and $5.00 , that or MX-4
  5. With all the thermal compounds I have to choose from after doing the thermal roundup, Timtronics Grey Ice 4200 has turned out to be my favorite TIM, it's a top performer and it's application is excellent, you won't be disappointed.
  6. I figure it's easy to apply and no cure time , should be as good or better than the OCZ freeze , and it's only 5.00 .
    Thanks , read other reviews and they all agree , I just rather get the info from someone that's used it , never know with some reviews , get that from years of reading car reviews . At least here I can be sure it's not some shill getting paid to print good results .
