Summary: This was my first time applying thermal paste to my processor. I have had an HP laptop for about three years. The fan became clogged and was overworking after about a year. So I took the laptop almost entirely apart to get to the fan, which you have to do with HP laptops. That was not fun, but I got to the fan. I had to disconnect the whole thing, including the contact area between the copper and the processor.
Summary: Well, this is the thermal compound I used in my latest build and everything seems to work well. Atm I'm not overclocking or anything, but the temperature seems pretty god with the stock Intel fan. Maybe I'll try some overclock in the future, and I won't doubt to use this compound (Since I'd need to change the fan). L8er!
Summary: I have yet to find a thermal compound I trust and like more than Arctic Silver 5. It is cheap in price ONLY. Works like nothing I have tried before. Even the "Thermal Compund Pads" that are "EXCELLENT" are nothing compared to Arctic Silver 5! I give it 10 out of 5 a rating I coin here and now as "Out of the Ballpark Excellent".
Summary: This was the first time I ever tried to replace a CPU. The thermal paste arrived in a timely manner. The instructions that came with the kit directed me to their website. There, complete instructions are given for just about any CPU that one is changing, including the one for my wife's computer! The Thermal Material Remover completely cleans the CPU cap and heat sink. Then, the Purifier prepares them for the compound application.
Summary: It's worth the price. My laptop was constantly around 68 degrees C and occasionally s***s down due to overheating. The remover removes the old paste very easy and the purifier works excellent and also smells great with the orange flavor. However you need to check online for instructions on how to use. Now my laptop averages around 57 degrees C and the fan runs at low speed.
