11.49 down from 13.99. Grabbed some as I was at the end of my kryonaut and wanted something longer lasting. Temps are supposed to be around noctua nt-h1, and a hair better than mx-4

MX-5 is now available and this is new too! (please don't mention Mazda). This is slightly less viscous like putty while the MX-4 is more like toothpaste viscosity. Temps go down just slightly with MX-5 but negligible. Great quality thermal paste! Bought MX-5 and some thermal pads of various sizes to start project on a Gigabyte RTX-3090 Vision.

I prefer getting the smaller tubes because they're easy to order off Amazon and I keep losing them in boxes or drawers. I bought a gigantic tube of thermal paste once and you can do so many CPU's GPU's before getting around to using 8g. I think the rule of thumb is 1g for one CPU or GPU.

So how long can you store this in a tube and still use it?

Seems like this is almost as good as the top end for a fraction of the price?

As long as you don't cut the tip, and put the cap on tight if you do.

People cut the tip off instead of using the cap?
