The ANtec stuff, but i wouldnt get either i would try and get good stuff, thats the cheapo stuff, Arctic silver or there are pads you can get i think from akasa and arctic. I would get your thermal material from overclcockers they keep the best stock of it.

thanks guys, got some arctic silver 5 heading my way, hopefully it wil lsolve my continious cpu problems.

Right now my cpu is running at 52 cent. with a 3d Gigabyte rocket cooler and a thermaltake case thats thrashing cole air thru it....never though for one minute the problem could be the crappy heat paste i was using.

The one i use, balck and white colour scheme, i only know there is another because ive accidentally typed the wrong addy a couple of times, i keep the right one bookmarked(http://www.overclockers.co.uk/) and they have never not had arctic silver 5 although they are slod out of the cleaning kit, they also keep the good pads and the epoxy and ceramique variants of arctic silver.
