Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions launches the premium “GC-2” thermal compound as the successor of the multi award winner “GC-1”. The “GC-1” thermal compound will be end of life by end of May 2009. Optimal heat conductivity and low thermal resistance make the “GC-2” best-in-class thermal compound and enables an effective heat transfer. At the same time the compound is non-electrical conductive, non-corrosive, non-bleeding and non-curing. Aiming for the same high performance and price range as its predecessor the “GC-2” contains 7g paste which is twice as much as most other competitors. The “GC-2” will be part of the SILENT product line of GELID Solutions.

well thermal paste IS silent, so i guess it fits the marketing description for silent stuff.

Nice to see another paste, lets see how it performs.

AS has already dropped off the top podium, a few others give better results and you don't have to reapply them ever like AS where you have to go back now and then and do that.

Wait, reapply? Do you mean as in after a certain time period you have to go back and put more on? Or reapply anytime you remove the cooler from the CPU?

Yeah, I'd like to see how this performs against MX2.
It's around a full degree better than MX2, beats AS5 hands down. There are still better pastes on the market, although its about average price for a tube of TIM.
As far as the spatula, I always end up with more on the applicator than on the cooler or the proc. ;)
