+ Nice way to answer. I normally use Arctic Silver 5, but everyone has their preference.


I used ceramique once but was unimpressed.. Swapped to no5 after a recommendation on here, I'd have to say it was easier to use and I've no complaints with the result on a few xbox 360 RROD. It's not a mac, but I'm sure Mayer uses it, in fact it may have been his recommendation!


+ that's 3-12 degrees lower than standard pastes. Yes I use the Arctic Silver. I didn't like the ceramique either.
