What is the best thermal paste out there?

Hello! Just wondering what is the best/cheapest thermal paste out there? I've always used 12 gram tubes of Arctic Silver 5, which is nice because you get about 20 uses per tube, although I've noticed the price has gone through the roof recently ($25??? yikes!), and so I'm open to trying something else. I'm just curious what everyone else is using...I'm particularly wondering what the best way to go is for someone who uses a lot of this stuff (bulk pricing, large tubes, etc.) And is there really a range in noticeable quality, or is it all pretty much the same? Thanks!

Ebay item # 270648787022, is $12.69, free shipping for the 12 gram tubes. I just bought a couple just in case the price is doubling.

Awesome, thanks! I just bought a couple from that listing. I'd been searching for "12 gram" instead of "12G", so I think I was only seeing the higher-priced listings. I remember having paid $12 in the past, so I thought the price went up. Anyway, thanks again! This stuff works well, so unless anyone has a better suggestion, I'll probably stick with it.


the 12 gram has been the largest tube I've seen.
