5 out of 5 eggsThis is the thermal paste that the collective consciousness of the Internet reccomended to me.

Pros: I assumed Arctic Silver was the go-to thermal paste for all your thermal paste needs. I consulted the Internet to confirm this, and was corrected. The Internet has spoken, and Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme is "...probably the best thermal paste you can buy right now."

Cons: What cons?

5 out of 5 eggsCase of the Pasties!

Pros: Read the reviews and go nuts trying to find the best TIM or just buy this stuff, it works great.

Cons: Not Edible.

Other Thoughts: I don't know, stress test, CPU = cool, what's the stuff supposed to do again?

5 out of 5 eggsI'll be using this from now on.

Pros: Non-Conductive. Which is piece of mind. The conductivity of Arctic Silver 5 always made me nervous. Quite a few reviews and "round-ups" around the web proclaiming this stuff is top of the line.

Cons: I got nothing.

Other Thoughts: A lot of reviews referencing material viscosity, Gelid must have changed it, because mine was no thicker than Arctic Silver 5. I didn't use the material spreader they include, no reason to over-complicate the uncomplicated.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing as always

Pros: As good as anything on the market at a remarkably low price.

Cons: The little spatula applicator is terrible, don't even bother, 'Pea' method works fine. Won't take a star off, they don't charge you for it, and it's not required, they just give it too you.

Other Thoughts: Always get 10-20c off of anything I put it on, be it laptop, cpu or gpu. Not my first time using Gelid, and I'll be buying it until they recall it or go out of business for not selling their product for more money.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: First off, thank you for including the paste spreading tool! Such a simple thing made my life easier at install time.

Bought a 6-core i7 5930K and a Corsair H110 AIO cooler with the intention of overclocking, so I didn't want to skimp on the paste. This stuff has worked great! Seeing better temps than most people have reported with similar setups. I have been running for 6+ months and there has been no fluctuation since it first settled in.

Cons: Not going to dock anything for price because you get what you pay for with this product.

Paste is a bit thick but if you are patient, use a good technique, and use the tool, it will come out fine.

Other Thoughts: Some pastes separate into liquid and solid if they sit too long, will have to see how this looks the next time I use it.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Great

Pros: My CPU cost me $340 so when it came to choosing a thermal compound the extra $7 wasn't much of a choice when it came to picking. Pea method worked and it spreads nicely. Keeps my hot headed PCs cool. The FX8350 idles around 25c and my I7 4790K around 30c. Both with mild over clocks.

Cons: Expensive for compound.

Other Thoughts: Great stuff try it

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: This has got to be the best thermal paste around. Grat for a cooler computer

Cons: Bit hard. Use water to make more malleable.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: -Under full load, the CPU runs about 4°C cooler than it did with stock paste.
-It comes with a spatula, but tech websites advised against using it.

Cons: -Paradoxically, idle temps are about 4°C warmer. Perhaps the paste's thermal conductivity is a function of temperature...or maybe they gave me that spatula for a reason.
