Zalman's STG1 is an easy to apply compound that increases the thermal efficiency of your computer's CPU cooling system by eliminating the miniscule air gaps between the processor and the heat sink. Instead of messy squeeze tubes STG1 comes in a bottle with a handy in-cap brush.

Application is a simple process. Remove the heat sink, brush the STG1 onto the heat sink, re-attach the heat sink. It conducts heat away from sensitive components and improves the efficiency of your cooling system. Keep things cool and functioning under the hottest action!

  • newegg Maximizes Heat Transfer The high-performance ZALMAN ZM - STG1 thermal compound eliminates minute air gaps between the heat source and the heat sink caused by their uneven surfaces for the optimized heat transfer.
  • newegg Ease of Use A brush applicator is attached to the cap for easy application. The bottle with a tightened cap ensures up to 10 applications of the thermal grease.

4 out of 5 eggsTiny Bottle, Great Compound

Pros: Ridiculously easy application, great control, even coating.

Cons: Tiny amount of compound. Just barely enough for one application to 2 surfaces.

Other Thoughts: Like tons of other reviewers, I love the ease of application of the compound. Got a nice even coat on both surfaces (CPU & Cooler Block). It does what it says, solid connection for heat transfer. My temps are 16° C. at idle and no more than 40° C. when tasking the CPU.
Wish I had more of the stuff for future applications. Hear that, Zalman?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Applied paste to approximately 5-7 cpus and I still have PLENTY for more. I think some reviews that mention that there isn't enough paste in the bottle.. they apply too much. Either way, it does it's job and does it well.

Love the brush

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Applied and temps dropped 6-8 celsius from stock paste. Easy to apply and it doesn't have a cure time... 43-47Celsius to 34-37

Cons: Not much in the jar it was only enough for a am3+ socket processor and a Nvidia gtx 660

Other Thoughts: I was a bit stumbled when I realized it came like fingernail polish figured I'd give it a try anyways the temp drops made it well worth and applying with a brush is kind of fun

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Was free after rebate.

Cons: Bottle/vial type dispenser with a brush-on applicator isn't what I've used in the past. Basically a fingernail polish vial design. The fact that I had to keep putting the applicator into the vial to get more on the bristles was kind of a pain -- plus the fact that you are basically brushing on the paste doesn't seem right after years of applying thermal paste as a whole and letting the heatsink spread it with pressure. I can imagine tiny air bubbles being created when a heatsink is applied.

Have only used it once --

Other Thoughts: Didn't notice a difference in temps, but again, it was free after rebate so I'm not complaining -- I just wouldn't buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest thermal application around.

Pros: It was free after rebate!
So easy to apply with the "brush in cap" method. Seriously easier than any other method.
It works great, CPU is passing heat to the cooler effectively.

Cons: Yeah, the bottle was half full, but I was only building one computer, so I wasn't looking for a gallon. The only problem at all is that the brush doesn't hit the bottom of the bottle, so it can be a bit tricky to get enough on your brush.

Other Thoughts: The bottle is about the size of your thumb.

1 out of 5 eggsA bottle?

Pros: AFTER REBATE ITS FREE

Cons: IT CAME IN A BOTTLE WITH A BRUSH. ONLY THERES HARDLY ANY IN THE BOTTLE. I GOT 1 USE OUT OF IT, WHAT A WASTE....CAN'T GET THE REST OUT OF THE BOTTLE.

Other Thoughts: PUT IT IN A TUBE PLEASE
