    then be careful, a removed sticker, can ruin your RMA right for it, if there is still one ;)

    the only way to tell is to taste them... shin etsu has a more chalky, peppery quality than mx-3

    Yeah, you just put it on the tip of your tongue and rub it against the roof of your mouth... the grainier pastes are usually shin etsu. They are also a little spicier and more bitter. I cant put my finger on the name of the chemical exactly, but it burns your mouth a little if you leave it there too long.

    Did you notice a temp difference when changing the paste? im thinking about changing mine but dunno if its worth the effort.

    EDIT: Not to spam thread with my OT questions - but which paste did you use?
    Glad i asked btw... saved me trip to compusa.

    Surely the correct way would be to either compare the texture's, thickness etc side by side or for the only true way of knowing is scientific researching of the compounds used in each TIM... but I'm sure most if not all will not go this extreme to find out :)

    I have one, I was just curious since i've seen it come with a few boards. I mean, might be better than some onboards at least, don't you think?
