Nice cheap alternative – STARS Professional Thermal Compound with Injection Tube (10-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
I build around 4-5 PCs for friends and colleagues a year, so I decided to grab this stuff to try out. It is good quality and can compare to your average thermal paste, nothing special but very good for the price. Replaced the grease on my 6 year old Nvidia GTX8800 and it dropped the temperatures by 15 degrees.
Cons:
The rubber tips on the syringes can come off very easily once youve used the tube once. To keep the caps on, use the grease, put the red cap back on the syringe, then pull the plunger back 1mm to use suction to hold the cap on to ensure safe storage
Other:
Has been used over time and has not degraded in quality after 12 months, very surprised with the quality
Bottomline:
Very good, if you replace thermal grease frequently, give it a try.
