1 out of 5 eggsmight be good

Pros: Might be good

Cons: Might be good

egg delayted HSF installation

Other Thoughts: egg is two days in delaying a HSF installation due to slow dellivery.

I ordered a HSF with this product

HSF was here two days ago and NO Thermal Paste. If you live where I do this is extremely typical egg action.

They might say they are sorry but I really am.

5 out of 5 eggsAmong the Best

Pros: Excellent quality, among the best. Doesn't scratch processor or graphics chips. Easily cleaned with 91% rubbing alcohol. Easily applied.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is the best stuff out there that is not electrically conductive. The only thing better for a processor is liquid ultra. I use this for both processors and graphics cards. It dropped both idle and maximum temperatures notably. It doesn't scratch up chips like IC Diamond does.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Lowered idle temps from 47c to 30c
Includes spreader
Not messy

Cons: Drys very quickly.
Pricey for thermal paste, but works very nicely.

Other Thoughts: You have about 6 seconds to spread before it starts to dry on the cpu, will be buying again if more is ever needed.

5 out of 5 eggsGELID GC TIN

Pros: Simply put: It works!
Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler, 24/7 my Intel i7-950 is happy @ 4.2GHz 4 years later & I have not had to reapply the thermal interface material (TIM)

Cons: None after 4 years of overclocking CPU

Other Thoughts: With a proper install of TIM on a clean CPU & the Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler - CPU is still happy.

Buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsLowers Temps as Advertised

Pros: Lowers temps better than many other top brands I have used, my temps with Liqtech 240 stock thermal compound 88 celsius applied Gelid and after 24 hour burn in running prime torture test the temps dropped to 68 - 72 celsius across all cores at 4.8 3.30volts OC which is close to custom loop performance the Liqtech 240 1300 rpm max very quiet, and the solid feel and performance are outstanding.
This paste cleans copper,

Cons: Hard to spread compound, I recommend heating compound in ziplock bag in water in microwave to 120-130 degrees before applying

Other Thoughts: I wish there was more in paste in syringe

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to Be Working

Pros: Seems to be working
Haven't had the CPU overheat yet with an AMD FX-9590

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Writing this review while transcoding a Blu Ray using Handbrake and listening to a podcast on Rhythmbox. Using a heavily modified version of Xubuntu with all the bells and whistles on Compiz going. The heavy transcoding is in the High Profile preset with the film modifier. My CPU is maxed out and my temps are hovering around 47 to 49.5 C.

If it fails I'll come back and modify my post.
