    Id like to see this compared to Arctic Silver MX-2 compound and the liquid thermal compound. Thickness being what it is, its probably more of a hassle to spread.

    If you stick the tube in a glass of hot water, that may thin it out. Works well with AS5.

    im really interested in seeing a full review of all the best thermal compounds that are available to use. something like a 2008 review of what choices we have and how they compare side by side.

    Actually, all I had to do was put a small drop in the center of the chipset core or the CPU IHS and mount the heatsink. There was no spreading involved - pressure does all the work. In fact, it's even easier than making the thin line across the cores with AS5.

    Not at the moment. I have another heatsink that covers up the NB.
