5 out of 5 eggsBest compound ive used!

Pros: Amazing temps, inexpensive

Cons: Cant think of any

Other Thoughts: This compound is awesome!
I am running an i7 4770k on a MSI z87 XPOWER clocked at 4.5GHz with 1.25v with a Noctua NH-U12s 120mm AIR COOLER.
Temps using noctua's compound would max out at 85*, averaging in the 70's under 100% load. Replaced compound with GC extreme and the temps came down to a max of 75* with averages in the 60's at 100% load.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this is great thermal paste. i have been using it in all my pc builds and other applications. it workds well in applications which it might come in contact with pins.. non-electro and non-capacitive conductance.

Cons: i am only giving a 4egg for this because newegg is completely out of the 10ozs and i been buying this stuff like crazy lately. i just bought two tubes from here and i needed much more i was forced to by 30ozs from someplace else i couldn't wait. and i am mad about this whole fiasco because i need like 100 ozs or 200 ozs or something. break loose with the thermal paste already . way they sell it you would think this stuff is illegal or something.

Other Thoughts: i have used this paste in all cpu pc builds, replacing stock paste in gpus and other applications. it works really well in all applications which is why i been using it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Supplement To Any Cooling Solution

Pros: Instant Results
Keeps temps down
Great supplement to any cooling solution
Highly Recommended
High Viscosity - Harder to Spread than Arctic Silver 5 - Better because it doesn't get all over the place like low viscosity TIM's do.

Cons: None really

4 out of 5 eggsSome very goopy goo for your CPU.

Pros: *Excellent thermal dissipation. I've used it for both my CPU and GPU. Both saw minor yet significantly lower temps. With a proper installation you should be able to hack off about 3-4 degrees Celsius from your load temps.

Cons: *Like others have said, this stuff is thick. It has the consistency of peanut butter when it's at room temperature. I highly advise you to put it in a baggie and let it sit in a cup of hot water for a few minutes. Also, once it's warm, work quickly. As it cools, it gets very sticky and hard to work with.
*Not recommended for beginner.

Other Thoughts: I usually use the pea sized blob in the center of the heat spreader for AMD chips. This method doesn't fare well with this stuff. I advise you to use the included spreader.

Also, this may not work well for heat sinks that have low installation pressure.

5 out of 5 eggsFixed my CPU cooling issues

Pros: I installed an H80i and the temps went *up* about 5 to 10 degrees over the stock Intel CPU cooler (from 30 - 35C to 35 - 45C). Decided the paste must have been bad and used some old Arctic Silver 5 I had laying around and didn't get enough on there for fear of putting too much and it messing up my system, so the temps were again 5-10 degrees higher with much wider fluctuations to the high side. It shot up to over 80C once.

So, I looked around and researched a lot of things and found the GELID GC-Extreme and took a chance. Cleaned it all up again and applied the compound a little thicker than probably necessary, but figured it's not supposed to be conductive, so what the heck.

It immediately dropped the temperatures down to below where the original Intel stock CPU cooler was (29 to 33C). After a little while, I now see temps as low as 25C and almost never above 40C even under load and in the middle of summer in Texas.

Cons: The only con I can find is it's a little odd spreading the paste evenly, but it's not that bad and a little too much in my case hasn't caused any issues in well over a month's worth of use.

Other Thoughts: Board: ASUS Z87-Pro
CPU: Intel I5-4670k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H80i

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Outstanding performance. Stands up well over time. The original application on a 4 year old CPU still going strong. This is my favorite thermal paste. I use it for CPU's and GPU's, on both air and water, I love it. I think this is pretty much the best you can get without going to the liquid metal stuff that is conductive and looks to be a real pain. This is one of those good products that just works great, I hope they never stop making it.

Cons: Almost impossible to spread, I don't even try anymore. The included spreader is useless. I just use a dot or a line and get excellent results!

5 out of 5 eggsJust love it!!!

Pros: I had a heat issue with one of my GPU's and guessed it was poor TIM application and it was but I never expected a 20C drop in temps. That's right 20c right off the bat. I am seriously impressed with this thermal paste and now use it for everything. I have some more on the way as I write this.
Applies very easily.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Well worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent thermal compound

Pros: This is the absolute best thermal paste out there, hands down.

Cons: None, unless you want to say that it's expensive. You get what you pay for!

Other Thoughts: I have seen some people say that you need to warm this paste in order to easily use it. This was not true in my case.

The spreader is a nice extra, but I don't use it. It's better to just apply a dot and put the CPU cooler right on to spread it.

Also, the black cap is rather difficult to remove without pliers. This is not really a con, but at first I thought it wasn't even supposed to be removed at all.

2 out of 5 eggspowder

Pros: works well

Cons: short term, dried out after a year of consumer gaming. I got great temps at the start but rising readings forced me to dissemble and have a look.

Other Thoughts: Short term use is as good as I can get. A5 outdistances it, as I see it. Not scientific. I am changing all my rigs back TO S5. For me it is a plan. Temps have fallen back to startup readings. Could be just me, those online test machines are quite daunting and I hesitate to doubt.
