    I can tell you that with shipping the price of getting it through a member here and through retail are going to be the same. Might as well buy a new tube of paste. Use tissue and some rubbing alcohol to clean it.

    I like the MX-4 though it's a bit overpriced. The Gelid stuff is fine for the price.

    Fry's and Microcenter have some good choices. Even Best Buy has some Dynex paste that works fine for $10. Just curious, why are you buying from SVC? I've bought some more obscure (at the time) stuff from them before and they're local to me, but it seems they're not the most economical place anymore unless you're buying something that's not easy to find elsewhere.

    Get that, within 1°C of the best paste around, and you get a shitload for super cheap.

    As for paste remover, just get some 90% rubbing alcohol from your local drug store. If you have some stubborn paste, then go grab some Goo Gone from the hardware store, used that first to disolve the paste, then use the alcohol to clean the surface.
