Works As Advertised - Beware of Side-Effects
Reviewer: DightalMint (4)
Awesome stuff once you get used to pre-heating parts before assembly. Can become VERY hard in long-term use on parts that get hot. Also tends to SCRATCH polished silicon and copper surfaces, so make sure to dissolve with IPA rather than scraping old compound off.
Hands Down Winner!

Its got the best heat transfer, Period. It could only be beaten by brazing the damn parts to getter, and that''s not gonna happen ... :)
1) Incredibly thermally conductive
2) Totally non conductive.
3) Reusable to an extent, because it "peels" off parts when its cold.
1) It''s almost solid at room temperature. You need to keep it on a "hot plate" at 60C to make it flowable, you have to pre-heat your card in the oven, and then you have to assemble as quickly as possible.
The "Single Application in Center of Die" is the only technique that works. If you have a liquid-cooled system, *by far* the easiest way to set the heatsink is to apply th compound to the die. gently attach the water-sink to the GPU board, the run *very* hot tap water through the heatsink while slowly tightening the screws.

In my system, This stuff beat out MX-2 by -2c under load. The MX-2 beat good ole AS5 by -2c. It beats the best Shin-Etsu by -1c. I tested these compounds on an overclocked i7-930 @ 4.1ghz with a IFX-14 cooler.
If you want the best, then here it is. I does help to warm it up with a hairdryer before applying the block.
This stuff is very thick and difficult to apply but if you want the best then you have to be willing to put in the work.
It''s dark colored like AS5. Usually Dark Colored TIM''s last forever, unlike the white, pasty silicon stuff.

Keeps our Intel i5-2400 running around 28-33c even under full stress load. It is pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. I would highly recommend this to anyone as we are going to start using this in every single one of our builds.
Works well but tough to apply.

Good results if applied well which is somewhat difficult due to the gritty/gooey consistency. Not for the novice.
Absolutely the best yet

Over 30 years with PCs, I''ve tried them all. This product applied to Q9550/Xigmatek and Phenom 945/Artic Cooling F64Pro combos dropped both idle and 100% CPU by at least 4 degrees. No other changes were made. Buy this one!
Get what you pay for :]

abit thick and gooey but heck after I''ve tried this I didn''t look back with artic silver after seeing the temps drop
Geat thermal compound
Yea its pricey but i saw a drop of about 4 Deg Celsius on my cpu Core i7 clocked to 4.0 ghz with a titan extreme cooler. There was also a significant decrease in temp on my core 2d e6600 with an asus silent night II on it about 3 degrees. Its expensive but worth it. This stuff is even thicker then the 7 karat just heat it up and then gently press the cpu cooler onto the slug and wiggle a bit.
