I Didn't Have Time To Search For Arctic Silver 5 Like Many Said To Use.
Excerpt: I ws cleaning and explring my desktop when I emoved the reatsink. Thats when I learned aout thermal compound. Thereafter mahcine was running hot and fan on and off. I removed old thermal compound and watched a youtube or two and replaced the damaged compound. Now works like a champ, my old machine of 8 years is running like new. Great product.
Pros: Easy To Install, Energy Efficient, Quiet, Reliable
Excerpt: Well, I've used this stuff before. Never really used its big brother, 7, but this does the job. This time, I cracked open my fat boy(40gb PS3)and dabbed it up. Unfortunately for me, I didn't consider the fact that gaming consoles usually have 2 PROCESSORS(CPU and GPU), so I went through it pretty quick(as in 1 application). But you know what? The syringe has enough for two CPU's, so boo for no extra paste.
Excerpt: My gpu was running hot 174 F. I was concerned that it would fry and then I would have to make a costly repair. Went to Staples and asked the guy behind the counter for suggestions and he asked how old was my computer so I told him about 6-7 years old. He asked have you changed the thermal paste? I was unsure what he meant so he told me and suggested the Antec.
Excerpt: I was glad to find this at Staples as I had first looked for the thermal compound at other stores. I was about to order it online when I remembered that Staples had carried other items that I had needed.
