    200 grams of cooler master icy fusion thermal paste. A review says it has the consistency of wet elmers glue. I usually get tuniq thermal paste but I can't find it anywhere. This though. This is huge and thats a pretty good deal. Thermal paste is thermal paste right?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    As I said in your other post about this, I don't think thermal paste and bargain should be in the same sentence.

    200 grams? That's a lot of thermal paste! How long would it take you to use all that?

    Also, check the buyer feedback from Larry F. Rogers on October 22, 2011. He found this thermal paste to be electrically conductive, and a small amount of "slop" succeeded in frying a motherboard.

    I'd pass on it for something better that's easier to apply.
