    The real question is not whether or not that is a good deal it is do you really need to use that much thermal paste for anything in the near future or would you simply have it lying around for quite a long time?

    That is a huge amount that will last several years. They also have a 40 gram for the half the price. I was just poking around to see whats out there. but then I saw this. That is a epic amount. That would last so long for me that we probably be obsolete by the time I was half way through. My gosh though.

    I already had my mind made up for what would replace tuniq. This is a good price though. I wont be getting it for sure either

    As with any thermal paste, it's best to purchase in small sizes. Much of the thermal compounds have a limited shelf life. To extend the shelf life, it's best to store in a coffee mug in the back of the fridge with the application tip downward.

    Also, when purchasing thermal paste ... ALLWAYS ... inquire the manufatured date or shelf expiration date before purchasing.

    This is something better for small business of building rigs. You better keep with Tuniq, Noctua, Arctic(higher quality).
