"After testing the Arctic Cooling MX-2 last time, we wanted to see how if the MX-3 thermal grease was really better or not. Thanks to Arctic Cooling for sending us a 4g syringe of their MX-3 thermal compound for testing. Although, thermal compounds are a very small part of any cooling setup, they are extremely crucial. They helps to better connect the heatsink with the CPU to transfer heat effectively out."Arctic Cooling MX-3 Thermal Grease Review @ BayReviews.com

The Noctua NH-U12P SE2 is a great cooler. I was already impressed by its predecessor, the NH-U12P and Noctua has managed to improve on it with the inclusion of an extra NF-P12 fan.

Installation was also extremely simple - the clearly illustrated manual was a big help.News - Noctua NH-U12P SE2 CPU Cooler Review at Overclockers Online
