What is this? Why so cheap?

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Test RESULT: Phenom x4 840 with a heatsink that is made of copper and has curved base due to heatpipes are installed inside it: ROOM temperature 17c Full load - torture test (after 30 minutes): CPU socket = 67 to 68c?
  • Pros: Cheap ... I bought it from Trade Me for 33% the RRP price. Can be reused and it should work like general thermal past for most dual core 3.2GHz Phemon CPU.
  • Cons: >> Impossible to spread using the spatula. I'm in NZ, winter time and room temp is 16C. I've think of squeezing it out into a tin foil, fold the tin foil up and heat it with a hair dryer first. But I didn't do that in the end. >> I use a pair of razors - 3cm x 9mm razor and a second razor 7cm x 1...

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.

IMPOSSIBLE TO SPREAD!

Erin H., Newegg

  • Summary: you have to use the pressure method, which personally i hate, because its too easy to use too much and if you use too little the whole chip isnt covered, and its a one time deal, you pull up the sync, REDO! personally i prefer to go silver and gain a few degrees, than deal with this hassle
  • Pros: Its supposed to give better temps. Fun to say "i cool my rig with diamonds, WHAT SON!"
  • Cons: it comes with a spreading tool that is completely worthless. this stuff is LITERALLY impossible to spread by hand! it will take you several tries to get it right so beware

  • Summary: Cost too much for what you get.
  • Pros: Got it at half the normal price because of other items ordered. Nice and safe packageing. Fast shipping from the Egg as normal.
  • Cons: Thought i would give it a try, but i have tried this tim in every way possible, from a thin coat,just a small rice size dab, a some what thick coat-tint both cold plate and cpu, on and on. So far i have not seen anything in temps at idle or full %100 stressing that is any better than my artic sil...
