Excerpt: So I have a 4 year old laptop that has a couple upgraded components. Recently, I noticed it running overly hot, so decided to tear it down, clean out the fans and heatsinks, and renew the thermal paste.
Summary: Would not use this product or recommend it to anyone again because of it's lack of durability, trust, reliability and effectiveness. This only lasted about 17 days cool until it started to warm up and heat up again. I bought a different one than this later on and worked much better than this item overall in cost, and effectiveness!
Excerpt: Many bash it, but it still places in the top 10 in almost all legitimate tests compared to other TIM's. The difference between them is maybe 2-3°C, and for all but the most extreme users, that will not make a difference.
Excerpt: Nope. Too freaking sticky, broke my processor when I tried to take it out =\ thanks, who ever told me to obtain this junk, I hope you get a water cooled system for your fancy i7' junk and junk with much more junk and nasty smelly radiator fluid all more than the spot. Don't acquire some thing because your friend did or since an individual told you to, please I don't want you to go by way of what i did.
Excerpt: Looks cool Worse than generic white thermal paste that i get for totally free. Is a discomfort to clean up. My temperatures rose about ten C immediately after applying this paste. 24C idle temp with generic and 33C idle temp with this. And yes I reseated it many occasions. Also i let it burn in and it nevertheless failed to compete with generic grease. save oneself some dollars and get generic paste if you want much better cooling.
Excerpt: You get much more than adequate thermal paste if your doing only 1 CPU. Program= Phenom II - 940 three. 75ghz. I did not see the dramatic drops in cpu temps like some on right here had claimed. In fact I reset the CPU heat sinks many times attempting to get a drop in the idle/load temps and it under no circumstances occurred. When I used the low cost ű.99 very best acquire heat compound I seen a few degree's cooler temps.
