I always use the Zalman compound. It comes with a little brush and you brush it on the CPU. Looks like a fingernail polish container.

Lol Mullet.

Oh, and it appears to be $20 cheaper now too!

Except the GPU is still out of stock. Fail Mullet :mrgreen:

As far as I can tell, all the parts have been shipped except the GPU. But they were all shipped a few hours apart so I'm not really worried. I'm looking forward to this, but plan on me having an ASSLOAD of questions after/around Christmas *when i'll be assembling*. I'll try to give you guys a solid day in this thread, so maybe a few of you could be around to help while I'm building? I could probably hook up my laptop and webcam even.

Regardless, I'm very excited. Also... Should I buy a non-stock heatsink?? I don't think I should yet b/c it's gonna be about a year til I look into overclocking, but what do you guys think?
