Summary: I used the Arctic MX-4 in conjunction with a Corsair H75 AIO watercooler and a NZXT Kraken G10 bracket to cool my GPU (EVGA 660ti). Temps with the reference cooler would easily reach over 70+ Celsius when pushed. Now I find it hard to push it past 40 Celsius. I'm sure that this thermal paste is much better that what I was using before (Arctic Silver 5). The price was a bit more, but you get so much of it. I'm sure I will never need to buy paste again.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying. Advantages: * Works well. A few web sites have reports comparing how pastes compare to each other. This one worked almost as well (within a couple of degrees) of the best popular ones that were tried. I had a laptop that shut itself off because it was overheating. I reduced it's maximum load to 60% in Windows' power settings and it still hit a maximum of 80° C.

Summary: Thinner than some of the other pastes on the market, but it settles right away and performance is excellent. Paired it with a Corsair H100i and it cools my i7 4790k to 55 full load, idle 28-32 and most regular loads won't exceed the high 30s or mid 40s
Summary: Interestingly, 4 grams is actually a ton of compound! I've already used it on over 6 dies and it looks like it still can be used another 6 times! The cooling capability is absolutely amazing. The non-conductivity is great for pros and beginners, giving you another thing to not worry about. The tube itself is easy to apply and has a cap on it that works great.
Summary: This is a fantastic product. I had installed a Corsair H100i on my Intel i7-4790 but was still seeing temps at or above 80-85 degrees under full gaming load with the stock thermal paste. Not happy with that, I purchased the MX-4, removed the stock junk paste and applied a decent, pea-sized amount onto my CPU. It seemed to make much better contact with the cooling block than the stock, pre-applied paste. Now, under full gaming load, the CPU temp never cracks 50 degrees!
