Thermal paste

What a horrible review. They only compare the paste to a generic one. Isn't it pretty much mandatory to at least compare it to Arctic Silver 5?

Maybe they did and the Artic Silver 5 was worse than the generic and they didn't want to show it. I have my suspicions that unless this layer is put on too thick (!) that differences are minor (which even in this case against the generic, it was if truth be told -- a couple degrees really isn't significant). I also suspect that one paste may work better than another (however slight) based upon the particular heatsinks and processor surfaces. Goop particle sizes vs. size of the pockets to fill.
