Keep in mind though, a low cost h2o doens't pwn high end air 😛..And it takes a lot of mony for h2o to pwn high end air...But when you get into the h2o pwning...it gets massive 😞..

Also I think I have 1 of the earliest, if not the 1st revision of the E6600.

Sorry i'm bumping this post... but I found a really neat article testing TIMs (including the newer OCZ Freeze)

http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=138&Itemid=1&limit=1&limitstart=1

OCZ Freeze is apparently a really good product... I may have to try it out on my Zalman 9700 / E6600 :)

I use both Arctic Silver Céramique and Arctic Silver 5. Arctic Silver 5 works better in my experience but it takes a long time to set, but once set it's great. But for quick jobs (where I expect to unseat the processor within a couple days) I will use Céramique since it has a fairly low curing time. I recently got a tube of OCZ Freeze but I haven't tried it yet. I'm hoping I can replace Céramique with it, but that will depend on how long it takes to set.

Let us know when you use it.. i'm interested to see how an experienced Artic Silver user thinks of the product... i'm either going to buy a tube of Artic Silver 5 or OCZ Freeze to re-do my processor and my GPU.

 I am using for 3 years in a row the Arctic Silver 5 Thermal compound and I can say I am very pleased with its performance.I get 2-3 degrees celcius lower temps than a normal paste based on silicon

There was a paste that was in beta testing for some time,it was offered free for testing on several forums,and its name was ICD7

I've been using Artic Silver 5 for the last 2 years on all my builds, that with a good heatsink\fan and never had any temp issues.
