3 out of 5 eggsProduct seems OK, packaging is lousy

Pros: Good instructions online. Need to find out exactly what type of CPU you have.
I have not checked temperature if thermal compound is effective, after breakin period.

Cons: Compound does not easily spread. Would be much better if a tad more liquid.
Syringe was packaged in a flimsy bubble envelope. The handle of syringe tore a hole on the envelope. Lucky to have no damage to syringe..

5 out of 5 eggsBest Thermal Compund!

Pros: I have used a ton of compounds and this one is the best!
Easy application and spreads evenly very easily.
Keeps my AMD FX-8320 in the 20's with my Corsair H100i GTX Liquid Cooler.

Cons: Tip of container breaks off easily, first tube was a huge mess. Replacement was great.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this stuff

Pros: I've been using this for my aftermarket heatsinks since 2005 and it has always proved easy to apply and performed its job well.

Cons: None thus far.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Great value and you get a lot of it. Nonconductive is important to me. Applies smoothly and cleans off easily.

Cons: The syringe it comes in takes a lot of pushing to get anything out of it.

Other Thoughts: Wish the syringe worked easier.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Large amount. I didn't even realize I'd ordered the 25g tube until it came today. Should last me awhile, so, there's that at least.

Ceramic means it's not electrically conductive or capacitive, so it's forgiving of mistakes.

The price is great. When all my parts come in I plan to install it right from the get-go, so I won't really have a before/after temperature comparison, but there's plenty of reviews here already attesting to its ability to drop processor temps.

Cons: Arrived with the tip broken off. The entire syringe had just been tossed in a box with several heavy items, with only a couple deflated strips of air packing thrown in on top. Not going to knock off a star for that, though, since that's not really a product quality issue.

From reading reviews here this seems to be a common issue. Newegg customer service is shipping me a replacement, no hassle at all, so I've got no complaints there. One of the reasons I keep shopping here is because even when I have an experience like this, customer service is right on it, and quickly.

Other Thoughts: It's ceramic, not silicone, so expect to have a little more difficulty spreading it out. Like any thermal paste, just a thin layer will do - but unlike silicone paste it's not going to spread out on its own.

3 out of 5 eggsWorth the mess?

Pros: Plenty of paste for a fair price. Nice syringe applicator.

Cons: Super sticky, messy, and very difficult to spread.

Other Thoughts: If I had known how hard it was to apply a thin, even layer of this stuff, I would have never bought it. Yeah, it works, but I don't think it's worth the effort it takes to put it on. (and clean off.) As far as cooling goes, it's not any better than the cheaper brands I've tried. I'm really starting to doubt if thermal paste is even necessary. I recently saw a review on all of the top brands, including this one. Guess what performed just as well as them? Mayonnaise. yep.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, So good

Pros: I bought the tube originally not knowing if I'd need to use it building my computer. Turns out both the APU heatsink and the Liquid cooler I installed had some pre-applied. I just found my liquid cooler's thermal compound had already dried out and began to overheat my APU.

I just dropped a blob of this onto the unit, stuck it to the chip and bolted it in. So far, definately 15c cooler than idle was before. at least.. Its been in the computer for a little over an hour, and its still 15c cooler than it was before

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: I don't recall WHY I picked this compound, other than price, brand rep, and according to the reviews, I might have picked it because it's not electrically conductive. something someone like me (who's never applied thermal paste before in his life) would find invaluable.

$9 for a tube of ceramic 'glue' of sorts for a CPU Cooler? Hell, I just spent $899 on parts, Might as well burn another $10 on preventative care, Right? Glad I did!

4 out of 5 eggsArctic Silver CMQ2 works better than silicon

Pros: Transfers heat a bit better than the silicone grease
Cheap

Cons: Not as mobile as silicone

Other Thoughts: It appears to lower my temps by a couple of degrees. I read a forum post that said one should spread this thinly, rather than putting a glob in the center and expecting it to spread. The second time I put it on, I spread it thinly. Works great.

5 out of 5 eggsArctic Silver

Pros: Works great. Running a LGA1150 I7 and it works just fine. Change it every six months or so. Never had any problems with heat.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure you don't get it everywhere! It can be a pain to clean up.
