Summary: Pro: Very good nonmetal based thermal paste, very minimal bleeding and it have diamond particles! It's well packaged and a whole lot of thermal paste. The included spatula spreader is much more useful than a credit card if you are not a fan of the dot method. Very low curing time.
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
SPREAD IT!!! Dot/line methods are not enough in my experience.

Summary: Using this compound on my overclocked 980X and Corsair H70, I was getting temperatures well exceeding 90 degrees at first. Before this, using the stock paste that came with the H70, I was getting much safer temperatures 10-15 degrees below that, which were safe for my overclock.
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.
Excerpt: Very good stuff for replacing low quality factory (robot applied) heatsink grease and inferior heat pads. Works on CPU or any heatsink. This is only useful to someone who would take apart a device to this level. I needed it immefiately and the Staples price was not too bad for brick and mortar.
Pros: Easy to Use, Efficient, Quality Construction, Reliable
