Stock thermal paste?

I just recieved my phenom ii x6 and will be installing it shortly.

I watched a video explaining that the stock thermal interface material that normally comes on a HSF is better than AS5.

He said that the stock TIM is Phase Change where the AS5 is grease.

Prior to this knowledge I've always scraped off the stock TIM and used my own AS5.


If anyone has any wisdom to share on this topic I would greatly appreciate it.

I guess he means it melts when it gets hot.

Better than AS5 or other other better thermal compounds? Seriously doubt that.

If you found it on the internet - it must be True.

I think you want to use the Arctic Silver 5.

I have actually used the stock thermal paste and antec silver compound. the difference usually 1-3c, even average OC. its not like you will fry a CPU on the stock thermal compound or AS5 will bring down a CPU hitting 70c at load to normal temps.
