You are not going to get a sensible review on here.
There are few UK users
Few of those will have used ANY thermal paste
Even less will have used that make.

I would be surprised if anyone has.

I thought thermal paste, or at least some kind of compound as essential for cpu installs ?

Am I misreading what you mean ?

Yes, I didn't mean that it wasn't used in their machines, I meant that few have built machines and therefore will not have any knowledge about paste.

If you check the specs on your link, it shows only 20% metal oxide and 80% filler. Arctic silver shows 88% thermal conductive compound with only 12% filler.

With that said, I have used arctic silver and a few other compounds. I have never seen any difference in temps or performance.
