GeIL Copper Thermal Compound
We all know GeIL as a popular memory modules (RAM) manufacturer. GeIL sent us a small amount of their copper thermal compound. This tiny niche market is being dominated by Arctic Silver. Many large manufacturers fail to create high quality thermal compounds that can deal with the latest Arctic Silver products. Today, we are putting the GeIL copper thermal compound face to face against one of the best thermal compound solutions in the market. You’re right; it’s the Arctic Silver 5. We are going to find out about it pretty soon.

I'm nearing completion of my HSF roudup, here's quote on MX1
fact is that MX1 is more similar to Shin-Etsu G71, it's not easy to spread, but works better when the surfaces are not perfectly flat. AS5 works better on lapped heatsinks.
but when I say "better" I'm not talking about 3-5°C better.. but rather 0.5-1°C.
is this worth the extra cost? the trouble to do a reinstall of the HSF? in my humble opinion no. You should stick with your thermal paste unless you are using a very cheap compound and want to see a 2-5°C temp drop, which will only ever be of use when you decide to overclock your system to the limit.
What's the difference when running your CPU at 58°C all day or 55°C?
