Summary: Item does what it meant to do. I ordered this to prevent damage of my graphic card and CPU due to overheating. It was very convenient to use Instruction were very clear to. I was using thermal paste first time so i was not sure it will work or not but it did work. I can see clear difference in my cpu temperature and its performance .
Summary: This is a superior product. I had used this product on both my desktop and my HP model nc-6400 laptop. They both run extremely well. However I didn't see anything I could use for a spreader. So, I suggest using a popscicle stick as a spreader for this thermal paste. Just make sure you have cleaned it off thorrowly and dried it off before use.
