Summary: Replaced the Arctic Silver 5 with this NT-H1. Booted up my computer and just sitting at idle I could hear less fan and feel more heat. Granted upon cleaning the old Silver off of there I did notice the craptastic job I did at applying it. But with a stress test my core temps are 4 degrees Celsius
Summary: I purchased this thermal paste since my laptop was having heating issues, after using this amazing heat paste temperature has come down now my machine is very stable as new. I applied it on CPU as well as GPU and works perfect now.
Summary: I bought this thermal paste for computer builds after using a number of others. I does an excellent job, comparing it to Artic Silver and several others... Enough to do at least a dozen computers too, and the price was right as I caught it on sale at Amazon.
Summary: I was a non-believer. I didn't think that thermal pastes really made THAT big of a difference... until I bought this paste. Replaced the stock paste used on the Corsair h100i, which I believe is something along the lines of shin-etsu, so definitely not some crap stock paste.
Summary: Lowered my Radeon HD 7950 temps at load ~ 5ºC. The original paste was applied fairly decent, so was surprised with the amount of decrease in temperature the NT-H1 had. Very happy with the performance.
Conclusion: With 8.99USD for Noctua NT-H1, this is the best thermal compound that we have tested so far and we believe it will be one of the top thermal compounds that you could find in market as this Noctua NT-H1 is not only cheap but also perform better than them.
Pros: * Great performance, * Super value, * No burn in time, * Easy spreading
