    I ran out of the silicon based arctic cooling paste that came with the NV5 Silencer. I read around and apparently AS5 is bad because it conducts electricity (the silver?). I need a replacement and there's no silicon paste near me.. is it okay to use OCZ ULtra II compound paste?? It SAYS it's silver, but it also says it's not conductive?

    OCZ Ultra II Thermal Compound

    Thanks for help

    Edit: I also read that it CAN conduct electricity if i spill it. Would I be safer to get ceramic paste?

    They make ceramic pastes that are as good/better than AS5. You usually have to buy a tub of it, but it's under $10.
