quality control is everything 11/17/2019 1:59:55 PM

Pros: A very efficient alternative to tradition thermal paste or even more expensive metallic paste. Excellent thermal performance of 35W/m-K! It's also reusable making quick swapping /bench testing faster and cleaner.

Cons: Very poor quality control! The last pad I had purchased had scratches and gouges on its surface. The edges of the pad was uneven and appeared as if it was cut by a toddler. These appear to be different than the ones I bought just 10 months ago.

Overall Review: If you decide to buy these, open them immediately and inspect them for quality. I. unfortunately, did not do this right away and am stuck with a poor quality version of this product.

doesn't work in ps4 pro (or just hard to keep in place) 10/20/2019 1:58:26 PM

Overall Review: I like how easy it is to install. I would imagine that it's better for a pc setup than a ps4 pro, based on others' reviews. Kept getting overheating error messages on my ps4 pro. My guess is because it's not situated properly. Might as well use thermal paste. Has potential, maybe I'm using it wrong here.

Easy to Use; Does its job 10/5/2019 7:14:34 PM

Pros: - Easy to use
- Does an OK job or heat transfer
- Reusable

Cons: - I expected the thermal pad to do a better job than thermal paste. That is not really the case. The thermal pad does its job, but it appears to run warmer by 1-2 degrees C than thermal paste.

Overall Review: - I would recommend these thermal pads if you are looking for an easier application than thermal paste and are OK with *slightly* warmer temperatures.

I Like it! 9/22/2019 7:53:56 AM

Pros: Works as advertised.
Easy to Install
Thermal performance equivalent to any other thermal compound/paste I've used in the past
No migration or drying worries

Cons: Must take care when installing the cooler to make sure the pad does not shift position. I ended up using the tiniest possible dot of thermal paste on each corner to hold it in place.

Costs about 25X per application more than a really good thermal compound.

mediocre results 8/31/2019 7:21:07 AM

Pros: easy to apply

Cons: makes normal temps go up 7 Celsius
working temps jump around to places they shouldn't be
but it doesn't seem to crash the system for some reason

Overall Review: my normal temperature used to be 35 celsius
it's at 41-42 now
I won't even bother messing with it in game
it's too random

Exactly as advertised 7/30/2019 4:27:15 AM

Pros: -Great if you need to seat and unseat CPUs multiple times
-Saves time, effort, and mess
-Can't tell the difference between this and thermal paste for 65w and under CPUs (haven't used it for anything higher)
-Longevity (no drying out, probably going to have a longer lifespan than my system)
-No need for curing

Cons: -Cost
-Not as good as high end thermal paste
-Niche item

Overall Review: I would first like to say that the top rated critical comment talks about the pad already having been used. I've purchased a few of these and all of them came with creases (not scratches) and that doesn't mean that they've been used. I can't speak to the author's personal experience, but I suspect that was the case for him and people who up voted that comment.

Now, the top rated positive comment did a great job of outlining pros and cons for this thing. The only thing I would argue is that it does cost more than a tube of thermal paste, and a tube of thermal paste can be used for multiple CPU applications. I know I said it was a niche item, but I'm going to make an argument why you might want to get the 40x40mm version for a Ryzen CPU. First off, this is great for low watt use cases, and Ryzens tend to be very efficient, low watt TDPs. I think for most people putting a system together, they're probably going to use a motherboard that's out of the box already compatible with the current generation of Ryzen CPUs, and for those people it's fine to just use the thermal paste that comes with the cooler since I doubt most people are ever going to mess with that again. However, thermal paste acts like a glue to the IHS, and the way that the CPU pins are on Ryzen CPUs, you can easily damage your CPU unseating it from the motherboard. Using this thermal pad instead of the thermal paste completely mitigates that risk should you decide to upgrade your CPU in the future or if you need upgrade the bios and plan to just sell the CPU off after you're done with it. Most people end up getting the low watt versions of the CPU anyways, so I think this is actually a great product for Ryzen, but less so for Intel CPUs since Intel doesn't share that issue with how they seat their CPUs and they also have much higher TDPs and run much hotter.

Overall I thought this is a great product and is amazing at what it does, but I think there's definitely room for improvement. I don't have a lot to complain about honestly and I really hope we get to see even more amazing versions of this product in the future.

Easy to set up. 7/26/2019 10:02:45 AM

Pros: - Well packaged.
- Reusable.
- 40x40 perfect size for AM4 CPUs.
- Doesn't need to spread like thermal paste.

Cons: - None

Overall Review: On AM4 CPUs slightly overhangs on the sides, but not enough to reach the motherboard or touch other components.
