My earlier post was about disassembling hp envy 17, thanks to you guys, I was able to disassemble it.
I have to now, apply thermal paste on the processor and the choices of pastes have added to my confusion.
I know nothing about the specifications on these pastes and what is good / what is apt for a HP Envy 17.
Here are the three short listed ones - If you guys can visit and let me know which suits the best from specifications perspective for HP envy 17, I would really appreciate that.

I have been using Arctic Silver 5 for quite some time now and have been happy with the results. www.arcticsilver.com
What you should look for in the documentation is how many degrees it should lower the heat. I believe this item from Arctic Silver lowers the heat by and average of 12 degrees. Check the specs of the others.

Sorry, but arctic silver 3 is not available in the country where I reside.
I costs me 4-5 times as much as the ones that are available to import it from USA.
Could you go through the links in my post and see if they are as good as Arctic Silver?
I did some research and the reviews on newegg indicate that Coolmaster thermal 400 fusion is just as good or better than Arctic Silver.
