Summary: My idle temps dropped by about 2c which isn't much, but as temps climbed the difference scaled with it. When my CPU hit max load, the temps would cap out around 45c; stock paste usually hovered around 55c under 100%.
Summary: I cannot believe how good this stuff is. I have an AMD FX 8320, and was using Arctic Silver 5, and had it overclocked to 4.6GHz. The temps during Intel Burn Test would reach up to 83 degrees C. I removed the AS5, applied this, and the FIRST time I ran IBT, the max temperature was 69 degrees C.
Summary: this isn't a thermal compound for your GPU, or a delidded CPU. It very simply isn't robust enough to handle the immense amount of heat transferred in those situations, as you really should be able to tell from its rather low 110C maximum temperature limit.
Summary: Best thermal paste ever. Keeps the CPU cool even if you apply the CPU cooler wrong like I did the first time lol! No spreading necessary and as a matter of fact, I do not recommend you spread this product. it works better if you let the heatsink do the spreading to prevent air pockets.
Quality product, priced reasonably and does it's job.

Summary: I needed a premium compound in a hurry ... I had never used this brand, but the materials used in the compound were all familiar. I got this product on time and was able to complete the installation. The CPU under load is running cool and consistent. Noctua NT-H1 is doing it's job.
Summary: I would recommend this thermal paste due to its great performance.
Pros: Great thermal paste. Currently using it with a 5820k and a Corsair H100i. Using this thermal paste I am getting temps of 65 C with the CPU overclocked to 4.5GHz. You get a pretty good amount of paste in the tube. It should last for quite awhile.
Summary: Used it to replace AS Ceramique on both my GPU and CPU in an MSI GX60 laptop. Lowered my temps by around 5c (below what I was able to achieve with Ceramique). Definitely a worthwhile purchase considering the low price and the huge number of applications you get out of a single tube.
