Hi, in a week or two I'm going to go shopping at a faraway mall. One of the things to buy are some new thermal paste, because have almost run out.. and want to have paste always ready at home.

so far, I know these three brands are available. Which one do people recommend as good?

  1. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut Extreme
  2. Arctic MX-5
  3. Noctua NT-H1
I don't overclock, but do play games for a 1-2 hours each night before sleeping.

System:

Dell Optiplex 7010 MT
CPU: i5-2500k
GPU: MSI GTX 1050ti
memory: 32 GB Kingston 12800
cooler: Cooler Master T20
case fan: Noctua NF A9

update to the thread.

I got it already. A little expensive at 9.90 USD...
but will buy more if the performance is good. :)

going to use it when I install a Snowman MT-6 some days from now.
