Summary: Decided to try this one over the Arctic Cooling MX-2 because it was on sale. I was not able to spread it with the little plastic thingy because of the thickness(dryness). I thought the formula wasn't right with this batch so I went with the grain of rice technique of applying thermal paste and then I checked the spreading and it was nice enough for clamping back the HSF and powering the machine. Temps were in par with the MX-2.
Pros: Working very well, Très bonne performance
Cons: Not spreadable(bad batch?), Ne peut être napper(mauvais lot?)
Decent paste, but hard to apply and standard performance.

Summary: I really liked the packaging and included mini-spatula with this paste. There are a couple main problems holding this back. 1) It is very difficult to spread this paste. Even with the included tool you had to press down very hard. 2) It spreads terribly. The paste is very thick and sticks to its self, it will prefer to come right off onto the spatula than to stick to the chip. 3) You need a ton of it.
