Newegg: Delete Prior Review

Cedrick F., Newegg
24 April 2014
  • Pros: NEWEGG: I believe I submitted the wrong review for this thermal grease. I actually reviewed a fan controller but submitted it under this thermal grease product.
  • Cons: None.

Good but not Great

Cedrick F., Newegg
24 April 2014
  • Pros: Sets a variable speed. Though it works at initial setting, I frequently found the fan at a stand-still and not turning at all. I removed this control and used a Molex connector on the fan and now the fan operates just fine. Though I don't use this control at all any more, I'm only knocking off 1-...
  • Cons: Causes fan stoppage.

Great thermal Grease

Brandon W., Newegg
13 March 2014
  • Summary: I chose this after viewing a comparison list of thermal greases. This particular one sat up with a bunch of far more expensive greases in the review's "A- to A+" grading scale. I had been using arctic silver for the longest time until I ran out.
  • Pros: Great performance for price Easy to spread No cure time
  • Cons: none

I don't want to try anything else!

Michael S., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I just ordered my second tube of this stuff because last one worked so well! I have used this on a Celeron G530, Intel i3-3225, Intel Penitum III 1GHz, AMD Sempron 3300+, AMD Athlon 64 3200+, AMD Athlon 2600+, AMD a10-58009k APU, Nvidia Geforce 430 GT, Nvidia Geforce 650 GTX, ATI Radeon x800pro, AMD...
  • Pros: Excellent cooling No burn in required, works right away. Easy to clean off.
  • Cons: Price, but its well worth it. You don't get as much for the money as compared to the 25G tube of Céramique 2, and it was really tempting to get the Céramique 2, but I just don't believe it will perform quite as well. If I ever start doing computer builds for others I would use the Céramique 2 bec...

I'll pass...

Jason P., Newegg
3 July 2013
  • Summary: Ended up using Arctic Silver I had from my last build. Problem solved;)
  • Pros: It was free with the 9900 DF.
  • Cons: Horrible consistency. it was very chunky coming out of the tube and there were several 'dry' parts to it. It's almost like it dried inside the (sealed) tube. I was unable to properly squeeze out a large enough dab, so I tried spreading it around, but it just broke apart. I love Zalman products, b...

The Best Thermal Grease!

David Y., Newegg
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I love this stuff! I used AS-5 for years, and then Xigmatek. It now goes in all my builds!
  • Pros: Non-conductive and easy to apply. Gives great thermal transfer properties from day one-no curing necessary.
  • Cons: Can be a little thick sometimes.

Some really awesome goop

Joan W., Newegg
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Using it with a Zalman CNPS 9900NT. At stock, my x4 965 BE idles at 25C and under prime95 maxes out at 45C. I OC'd it to 4ghz and now it idles at 27C with prime95 maxing out at 57C.
  • Pros: Really good thermals and it has a thick consistency. I hate runny TIM as it can make a mess of everything. Priced very decently too.
  • Cons: Maybe it's because I received it as a freebie with a zalman heatsink, but I peeled off the label to find the tube was only a third full. Can't complain, it was free.

Hard to judge

Michael S., Newegg
29 October 2012
  • Summary: I wish I could say more about its effectiveness as a cooling paste, but I cannot. I upgraded my PC from a Celeron G530 with a cheap water cooling fan from Roswell and some really terrible thermal paste.
  • Pros: Cools the CPU very well. Eventually spreads well, but you have to work with it.
  • Cons: While removing it parts of it came out chunky and hard. There was absolutely no consistency with this in my opinion. The first bit was a pretty good consistency and spread well, then a harder bit which cracked and did not spread well at all, then more which spread fine, then more which cracked, t...
