5 out of 5 eggsGood TIM

Pros: Works really well
Lowered CPU temps a good bit
easy to spread
No 300 hour curing time

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I found this at B.B. and use it for my main system, and I'm really happy with it so far. I got a decrease in CPU temp by 5 Celsius after using it, instead of Arctic Silver 5, without that 300 hour curing time. It's a winner.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Thermal Paste!!

Pros: This an amazing thermal compound. I use it with my "Nuctua nh-d14" to cool my "i5-4670k. My idle temps run about 1C to 3C above ambient temperatures. I have yet to see a load temperature above 50C even after a 200Mhz overclock. (Ambient is 16C-18C. I like the cold).

Cons: This thermal compound is really thick. Unlike the other reviewers state this not mean that it "waste" thermal compound. I used the normal pea size I always use and was able to spread what I had. It took a while and I was extremely careful. Honestly. Just don't rush it. I've purchased several tubes of this and have learned it's easy to put a little bit on at a time and then spread it. Another reviewer suggested warming it by putting the tube in hot water. That works incredibly well too.

Other Thoughts: -You have to know what you're doing. If you don't know or aren't overly experienced with something don't get upset and post bad reviews when it doesn't work.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: i've been using this in all my builds and never had an issue. idle temps with an A10 are at 27-31c.

Cons: spatula does not work for such a high grade compound. its too weak. now i see why they say not to use it

Other Thoughts: after reading a few reviews on here i nearly lost my jaw. soaking thermal compound in water reduces its structure makeing it less able to conduct heat, thermal compound is made to be a thick past because of the elements in it. liquefying it separates the elements making it more like soup (the heavier particles float). the best method that works with such things is to apply a small pea size and apply your heatsink to the cpu/gpu.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than Arctic Silver 5

Pros: Really good thermal compound. Other reviewers claim its hard to use or needing to heat it but I found it simple to apply and have had good results.

Cons: Instructions should be given as some seem to be confused easily by thermal compounds and their application and its not entirely their fault.

Other Thoughts: After seeing so many complaints of it being too thick or not sticking to the heatsink, I contacted Antecs support and their response was to not use the spatula provided and instead use the pea method. Worth mentioning that while its not to thick to work with it is thick, you should use less than you would if it were Arctic Silver 5.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Difference

Pros: I have an HP laptop that had really bad Thermal Compound, but then, I switched it out for the Antec 7, which gave me really good results the first day. I'm not sure if it needs curing, but the temps are low w/ out curing.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: To me, get this over Arctic Silver 5, and remember, NEVER spread the thermal paste around your CPU/GPU

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome TIM but quite thick

Pros: My FX-8350 Idles at temperatures of about 20-23 Celsius. (I have pretty low ambient temperatures so this won't guarantee the same temps I have) On standard use the cpu temps usually only go to about 30 max. While playing games it usually sits around 35-40 Celsius. Also noticed it has about little to no cure time which is quite nice!

Cons: This stuff is THICK. Could be a few bucks cheaper.

Other Thoughts: Like some of the reviewers I also recommend putting this in hot water for roughly 10-15 minutes before applying this paste. Definitely made it easier to spread when I put my hyper 212 evo on my cpu. (Only using 1 fan on my evo and having it blow air to the rear case fan since my ram heatsinks are too tall for a second fan) Overall I think this is some great TIM. I would recommend it. Was going to try Arctic Silver 5 but i hear it has a 200 hour cure time. Quite a long time but am sure it works well too.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat stuff

Pros: Dropped CPU and GPU temps on my laptops by up to 20°. Cools faster after being under load than Arctic Silver 5.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I took apart a laptop because it was running hot. When I realized it wasn't dust buildup I popped off the heat sink to find the thermal compound was failing. I normally buy Arctic Silver 5, but this was all my local electronics mega warehouse store had and I wasn't going to wait a few days to get AS-5. I'm glad I had to get it. Idle temps on my Intel SU2300 laptop dropped below 30° and my Core i5 laptop dropped to around 35°. I'll be replacing the AS-5 on my desktop CPU and GPU this weekend.
