        abunda_amazon_reviews Be me 13 years ago. Built a brand new firebreather. Top of the line PC (for a college nerd anyway). Playing WoW at top graphics. I'm questing as a Tauren in Thunderbluff on top of one of those plateus (just hearthed back). Do you know why I remember this so vivedly? Because my PC froze for the last time. I learned a hard lesson: always apply a small pea-sized bit of paste, and ensure it covers most if not all of the CPU backing without billowing over.I hadn't covered enough of the CPU, so it overheated. The CPU had fried because the temperature shutdowns we have today weren't as robust. Huge bummer. Fast forward to a month ago (August 2018). Have about a year old custom PC. PC freezes during a stress test just after overclocking the CPU. First mistake: I used a stress test that tests the CPU and GPU, so it makes it difficult to determine if it's due to the CPU overclock, the motherboard, or just the GPU failing (which has happened to me a few times. Learn from this mistake and use Prime95). I just think it's a bad CPU overclock. I set the CPU back to normal settings. The PC still freezes periodically (maybe once every hour?) It drives me insane for a few weeks of troubleshooting, cleaning out my case, reseating the graphics card in the other PCI-e slot, reformatting, etc. I can't pinpoint what it is without $200 technician software. No thanks. I order a new PSU thinking maybe I screwed up voltages and fried my power supply (over $100) and I order this thermal paste. Thermal paste arrives first. I very thoroughly clean the CPU of any year-old thermal paste with coffee filters/Q-tips and 91% isopropyl alcohol, re-seat and apply the small pea-sized bit of paste to the CPU. The PC hasn't frozen since. What did I learn? Make sure your thermal paste is thorough but not too thorough (lesson learned 2004). What was my most recent lesson? Remove and reapply at least once a year, even if the paste says it lasts multiple years. I had ARCTIC MX-4 on the CPU for a year, and it said it is supposed to last for at least 8 years. With how dry it was (a layer was dry and really hard to remove from the CPU) I respectfully disagree. You could end up spending $6 versus hundreds (2018). The learning never ends. Remember, less is more but also make sure you cover the whole thing. It's a thin line. Watch the Youtube vids I didn't have back in 2004.

I don't have proof, but given how long the other tube I had of the exact same size I can only assume it was tampered with before ending up being purchased by me.

After powering up my PC with this product on my CPU(i7-6700k @4.6hz & 1.35v) it was ramping up to 75C just on start up(previously it would never get above 45C on start up).
