    I dont overclock my CPU. So the quality is not that much of a fact. But I want to buy a decent one around for 500. So between TT and CM which would you suggest ?

    If you are not into overclocking, 100 taka priced silver TIM ones will do the job. I'm using them for years and did not face any problem. They are available at elephant road and many other places.

    didn't do any testing with them but both are pretty decent. and i only used the cm paste provided with the hyper 212x. but according to the specs the cm e2 has a higher thermal conductivity so that's probably the better choice.

    Cooler Master IC Essential E2. Yes.
    Personally I've used TG3 from TT but nowadays UCC doesn't seem to be importing them anymore, alongside the price was higher too, so going for the CM E2 will be a good decision. But, I think non branded silicon/silver based TIMs are not a good choice for using with a quad core cpu.

    Using tg2 right now, not as good as the free cm paste i got with my 412S but is doing its job nicely on a 95W processor.

    Thats a good point to be noted. My Cpus were all dual cores.

    You can use the cheap ones now. It is winter! You can use it for both.

    Keep your money, if possible. There have been enough reviews of these toothpastes that show us what they really are -- gimmicks! The only real problem with poor quality compounds is that they dry out reasonably fast. However, "fast" may be slow depending on perception.

    For me, I've been using one of those 50 tk pastes for 2 years now, still good, no big change in temps. Long ago, when I was still into the overclocking fad during the time of AMD's reign, I used to be a fan of Arctic Silver. I can barely remember any big significant drop in temperature.

    Having said all that, I'm looking for Zalman thermal grease because it's just easy to apply.
