Good Thermal Grease – Heatsink Thermal Compound (Grease-like) Reviews

Pros:
Its thermal grease and it transfers heat quite well. Regardless of the problems with the ammount of grease, this container will last a while, you only need a gram or 2 to use on a CPU heatsink.
Cons:
There seems to be some odditys going on with the ammount of substance. I noticed some pictures show "20g" on it, mine has "10g" but a "2" has been crossed over it. Despite all that the container was only half full (about 5g ?)
Other:
I used this for replacing the dried out stuff on my CPU and heatsink, and the results were quite visable. Average CPU temps dropped about 5 degrees and it was able to dissapate the heat much faster then my previous themal grease (although it was already dried out).
Bottomline:
You should replace the themal grease on componants like your CPU every couple years, and when you do you dont need to go past this product, works well and though i dont know much about themal grease pricing, i imagine this is quite a bargin.
