StarTech StarTech 1.5g Metal Oxide Thermal CPU Paste Compound Tube for Heatsink

The startech 1.5g metal oxide thermal CPU paste compound tube has been scientifically tested and approved for stable performance in a range of wide temperatures.

Review 1 for StarTech 1.5g Metal Oxide Thermal CPU Paste Compound Tube for Heatsink

I needed this because I took apart my PS3 (after warrenty expired of course). It worked exactly as expected. The only draw back was that it had just enough in the tube so I had to make sure I didnt make any mistakes when applying it. But overall this item worked great.

The StarTech 1.5g Metal Oxide Thermal CPU Paste Compound Tube for Heatsink works great for a cheap fix. How it will hold up after time we'll see. Temps dropped about 5 F. Not a huge amount but enough to let you know it's working. I've been using it about a month now with no rising in temps.
Site to store shipping took awhile. I would buy this again. there is enough in the tube to do 4 or 5 CPU's or easily all the heatsinks on a normal computer. It's not a really thick firm paste, but not thin by all means. A decent thickness that works without alot of wiggling to spread it out. I used about a medium green pea size drop in the center of the chip.

bought this item to use on my computer parts and it worked great. It really looks like a great quality paste, which I think it is and it cost me only close to 10 bucks. Would recommend it to anyone!!!

The cpu fan was racing out of control because of a temperature problem. It turned out the themal paste for the heat sinc had dried out. The application of new themal paste fixed the problem.

With both video and CPU needing paste, this can be enough for 2 laptops. Good quality, ease of use, and great price.

Compared to the thermal paste that comes on stock coolers this stuff seemed to help lower the cpu temperature down a little more, the one con I can see is it does seem a little thin

Probably not the best compound out there, but nowhere near as expensive as others.
I put some on my new CPU, GPU, and heat sink and still had about half the tube left. (you don't completely coat it, it spreads easily) The consistency out of the tube was perfect: not too thick, not too runny.
Probably a combination of this and my faster CPU have my system running about 10 degrees Celsius cooler than before.

Best price I can find plus fast shipping. Have an old computer running P4 processor which require some thermal paste treatment. Works perfectly and mess free. Highly recommend this product compare to BestBuys which sale for $20 or more.

Performed a reflow on my GPU. Used Star Tech Thermal Compound during reassembly on both the GPU and the CPU. Used only half of the tube. Good product. I'm well pleased.
