Stability 7/11/2020 2:47:38 PM

Pros: Does its job of conducting heat between two surfaces well.
Very stable performance over time.
Easy to use.

Cons: Somewhat pricey.
Temperatures can be worse than conventional paste in some situations.

Overall Review: I used this to solve a problem I had with paste deteriorating over time on my RX5700 with a large aftermarket cooler. "High performance" paste from three different brands would lose performance after repeated thermal cycles. Load(20 minutes firestrike extreme loop) hotspot temps would start out at an average of 81c on the first day and would raise to an average of 93c after a month. The large cooler places an uneven weight over the die so perhaps the RX5700's relatively small die would allow some of the paste to work its way out over time.

This graphite thermal pad has been far more consistent, reaching 83c on day one and maintaining 83c on day 30. Overall, I'm pleased with the performance. I will say that the best paste I tested achieved a load temp of 79c on day one; if the absolute best temperatures are your goal, paste may still be a better choice as long as you don't run into the same issues I did.

Great alternative to thermal paste 6/12/2020 2:16:15 PM

Pros: * The messiest part was cleaning up the old thermal paste; after that installation was a breeze

* Infinitely re-usable. Great for situations where you are changing processors frequently, but if you are just using it once may not be worth the cost.

Cons: * A little hard to keep in place when attaching the cooler if the air is blowing at all (don't breathe!)

* For the price, you can buy a lot of thermal paste (if you didn't get a tube of paste for free with the cooler to begin with).

Overall Review: This is the second one of these I have purchased, and continue to be happy with the results. I'm only using i5-4k processors with this, so I'm not exactly taxing thermals but have seen no changes in heat dissipation over paste so far.

Since I'm using this for testing processors, it makes life a lot easier...

If you are going to be changing a processor more than once, I would highly recommend this.

Works great, no mess 5/29/2020 2:31:15 PM

Pros: - Quick and easy no-mess installation.
- Excellent thermal transfer in an HTPC Setup
- Makes part swaps easy

Cons: - I didn't have any issues but I would expect it would have a negative impact if the pad became creased or crinkled (due to poor shipping for example)

Overall Review: I've had issues with cured Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste bonding the IHS of my CPUs to the cooler so strongly that it pulled the CPU out of the ZIF socket in the past and thought this would be a neat thing to try. I am using it with a Ryzen 2600 Mini ITX build in a Silverstone ML07B with a Noctua NH-L9a and it's doing a great job. The machine is an HTPC setup and get's gamed on when friends come over. Thermals for the CPU have never been an issue.

I think these work very well. 4/6/2020 7:13:08 PM

Pros: I am having good luck with these in stock systems.
No worries about shorting out circuitry.
Clean, no mess

Cons: None

Overall Review: Linus Tech tips reviewed these favorably.
Some people have complained about these pads moving around, I don't have and issue with these moving at all.
The other complaint is the fear that the textured surface is not going to allow full contact, at this moment at idle the CPU is at 33 C degrees and peaked at 54 C degrees under load.
I believe that the texture is there to allow air to escape out the edges during compression as it flattens out. I could be wrong but if it was totally flat, air could get trapped an block the transfer of heat.

YAY no more thermal paste 4/5/2020 1:54:12 AM

Pros: -exact fit for my i7 6850k
-easy install
-temps are as cool as can be
-really makes swapping cpus easy especially if testing or installing a bios for your cpu or whatever you need.

Cons: I can't think of anything

Overall Review: Yup I would highly recommend this. I bought a second one that I could use for my other systems and even let my family know about it. I am not sure about the negative reviews but mine is working like a charm I am glad I took the chance to find out about this myself

Works like its supposed to! 3/5/2020 5:32:26 PM

Pros: After finding my Arctic Silver had baked on like spackle and was causing high temps on my CPU I went out and got this. Once I pried the cooler off the chip and cleaned it up I used this solution... It's been working like a champ ever since. No muss no fuss...

Cons: They need to tell you what size pad you need by CPU designation the first one I bought was too small, still it gets the job done.

Overall Review: I've been building rigs since the 486-33 days. This is the first true innovation I've seen in years... It simply eliminates all that muck and goop! Huzzah!
