Cheap but useful – STARS Professional Thermal Compound with Injection Tube (10-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
A great price for an essential item if you are a builder
Good quality thermal paste with none of the hype associated with branded items
10-pack means you can always have some handy ready for that component change
I've even used some on a peltier stove fan project and the compound has held up well to the extreme temperatures on top of a wood-burning stove
Cons:
None really - it just does what it says on the tin (UK ad blurb reference!)
Other:
Bottomline:
There is a lot of hype around on what is the best thermal compound - in reality any compound is worse than metal-to-metal contact. Where this helps is it allows 2 surfaces that are not 100% flat (and few are without a lot of hard work) to have as much contact as possible.
Always use the smallest amount you can for the best results
