Hello Everyone.
I was wondering what was best to keep your Porcessor cooler, Thermal Compound or Thermal pads?

Thank you

I'm a paste man myself. I have never used pads. I swear by arctic silver. http://www.arcticsilver.com/as5.htm

And make sure it is applied properly. If you follow their directions it will work wonderfully. Here is a link to them.

I too recommend thermal paste or the compounds. Arctic silver is the best. Never had a problem with it.
