Excerpt: This thermal compound is a requiped necessity if you remove the heatsink from your processor as I did. A cleaned surface with this compound reapplied works for me. Applictor helped keep the job and me cleaner and neater.
Pros: Easy To Install, Highly Compatible, Reliable
Summary: Put that on my AMD 6300 and the load temperature dropped by 4 degrees at least compared to the cheap paste I had from the corner shop. For some reason, I like the ergonomics of the applicator. I was used to tiny unwieldy tubes but this one worked like a charm.
Excerpt: What is there to say? It is heat sink "Goop". It is not hard to apply or spread. The included spreader is a nice touch though. (GRIN) I used it after I reflowed my Dell XPS M1710 Laptop Video card with a heatgun and some aluminum foil. Laptop works great again and seems to be running cooler.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Reliable, Versatile
Excerpt: One of my high-performance editing workstations shut down due to a "thermal event." So, I went to Staples and got a syringe of this stuff. I managed to apply the paste, but it was very difficult to obtain a thin film because it is so thick. I even tried heating it in hot water, but it thickened up quickly. This is very different from other products I have used, which were much less viscous and spread much more easily. The secret is to take your time.
Excerpt: Needed thermal paste for a desktop job, and a suspected bad CPU. This product worked great. Went on smooth and stayed pliable. Really sticky, but to be expected. I have plenty more product for other computer builds.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
