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

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Keeps temps cool by 4-5 degrees more

Cons: Very hard to spread.

Other Thoughts: Very pleased with this thermal compound.Helping to keep my overclocked 6core AMD cpu cool.I had to use a different way to spread compound.But it worked out.

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.

5 out of 5 eggsConverted from the church of AS 5

Pros: Super low temps, easy cleanup, spreads evenly, included spreader tool makes application a breeze - no more playing cards or other makeshift spreaders.

Cons: It's a little pricey for thermal paste, but for the performance I'm seeing I still think it's a steal.

Other Thoughts: Using with a CM seidon 120m AIO liquid cooler. It comes in your standard syringe applicator, just like every other thermal paste I can think of, but includes a handy little spreader tool that's really awesome and makes application easy, clean, and less of a hassle. I'm one of those people who used to buy AS 5 in bulk, and apply it to everything I could think of because I thought it was the best thing ever. It WAS the gold standard in thermal compounds for many years, and none of the other pastes I tried could ever match it. Now I'm a believer in this stuff. Saw my temps drop 6-8 degrees on idle and 10-12 under load. I'm really glad I decided to try this stuff out. I'm probably going to do my gtx660 or maybe an extra r7 260x I have sitting around next, at which point I'll update this review. Might even try delidding if I get the urge to do some more intense overclocking. Short of the new crazy graphene pastes, this is probably the best thermal paste I've seen on the market. Definitely recommend it to anyone, and if you're an AS 5 worshipper as I once was, I encourage you to see the light and join me at the temple of GC-Ex.

5 out of 5 eggsNew Fav

Pros: Love this stuff. I have moved from AS-5, to MX4, to this. That's over a 15 year progression, so when I find one I like, I stick with it for a while. This will be my go to until someone comes up with something way easier AND better performing AND just as cheap. Very hard to beat when you factor all 3.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsThis stuff rocks...but is so thick!

Pros: Extremely efficient at what it does. All the info out there claims it makes several degrees difference in temps on a cpu install. I have no prior history with this as I always used Arctic Silver 5...What I can say is this: Paired with the Cooler Master Evo 212 on the AMD FX-6300 and it hasn't run over 25°c at full load. idles around 22°c.

Now, there is little info included on the application. I watched a few videos that showed guys simply putting the small grain of rice sized drop on the cpu then clamping the heatsink down. Ya, not exactly that simple. You MUST heat it up. I tossed it in a sandwich bag (zip loc) with a couple case screws to keep it weighed down, and dropped it in a pyrex type glass measuring cup with hot water in it. Not hot tap water, but microwaved about 1:30. I tried hot tap water, didn't work. once you heat it up good, it flows. I did smear a very thin layer on the cpu and scraped off with the included tool just to pre-tin the surface. When ready, I put a small grain of rice drop, clamped down the heatsink, and was done. No issues, no excess, and no heat problems. Quite easy once you know the tricks.

Cons: Not really a con, but it is different to work with as opposed to the other stuff due to it's viscosity. Again, see the tips above that I found online...

Other Thoughts: I think I have found my new thermal grease for sure...this stuff really works well and does precisely what it says it does.

5 out of 5 eggsWell, I did not expect that!

Pros: The thermal compound lowered my CPU temperature by an average of 7 degrees!!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: All you need is a little bit right in the middle of the CPU, then use the spread tool to even it out a bit.

5 out of 5 eggsGC-EXTREME!!

Pros: -Non-Conductive thermal compound
-Dropped the temps i was experiencing at idle by 2-3 degrees, at full load by 5-8 degrees. (Was using Arctic Silver 5 before.)
-Very easy to apply, did not use the included spreader, just used the pea sized portion applied to the middle, and let the pressure of the cooler spread the compound.

Cons: -One of the more expensive thermal compounds, but because of the thermal issues with Haswell CPU's, this was a must for me.
