Pros:

Non-Conductive, Easy to use, Lasts ~8 years (It's only been in my system a few months, not sure I'll even HAVE this computer in 8 years!) according to the packaging, non-runny like some thermal paste/grease types can be.

Does an unreal job - immediately cooled my CPU by 10-12 degrees C, far more than I ever expected. Increased my processor capacity at least tenfold.

Cons:

I have not found a con yet, other than the package (this one, 4 grams) comes with about 4 uses, and I've so far only needed two: one for my computer and one for my mother's computer. Can't say it's really a con, as I still have lots left for any "just in case" situations.

Other Thoughts:

I never realized I had an overheat until I realized my intake fans were running like jet engines, and my case was warm. After a few days of this my computer would be very sluggish while playing World of Warcraft, or running any photo editing software, playing movies or even idling after a few hours.

My case was clean, my CPU heatsink and fans were all clean, so I couldn't figure out what the problem was. Turns out the person who gifted me with this self-refurbished box either didn't replace the existing paste, or didn't use a very good one if they did, as it stopped working after less than a year. I cleaned up the CPU and heatsink, added a little of this stuff, and the computer runs silent and like new. This wonderful stuff made such a difference that it was a difference of $10 for the MX-2 or $2500 for a new computer!
