Damn good thermal paste. I used this product on my recent build. A little bit of this stuff goes a long ways!

I've had the same stick of thermal grease for years, still works great!

Been using this in my laptop for years and it dropped the load temperature from 90+ to 75 degrees Celsius. Had some left over for my desktop build so replaced the stock paste on my H60.

been using this for almost a decade now, it just works. just remember to replace your thermal paste on your cpu every 2 years or so.

Bought this many, many years ago. Still as happy with it as the day I first discovered 'thermal paste' even existed and started to look into it.

Is it any better than the more recent alternatives? No idea.

Does it work really well? Absolutely.

Do I have any regrets? None.
