The clear silicone based is next to crap and the white silicone/zinc might be acceptable but something like arctic silver 7 will give you best results. On the other hand sites like the electronics goldmine sell components dirt cheap. If the overloaded part fails it may kill other components as well possibly costing you a small fourtune.
