Summary: zalman does it again with easy application with a brush and seal cap unlike the 1 time use of paste which seems to dry up once open right. pluz it seems to less on the compound versus this grease and look at the heat rating too. PRO multiple applications by useage but volume might be similar but use factor is different CON not the highests limits Overall save money and use it again and again
Summary: This product applies on very well. I did alot of research when I was going to replace my CPU and could not find a better product. The only Con is that you have enough for several cpu's, but that really isn't a con. Don't settle for cheap Thermal Paste.... Only use top grade Thermal paste for CPU installations and Upgrades.
Pros: Why on earth did no one ever think of this application method earlier? The brush makes it simple to apply a super thin, even, and consistent layer of paste on your processor or heatsink. I used to use Arctic Silver 5 on all my builds but am now a convert to this paste.
Cons: None really. Price is a bit high and for the size of the bottle, you don't get much inside. I didn't see the lower temps that other reviewers have reported vs. Arctic Silver 5. My temps with both pastes are exactly the same so it seems to me that they perform equally, but that is not REALLY a con as the performance is quite adequate. IMHO the precise application method more that makes up for any cons I've seen.
