I bought a few packs of these at PC world for a HUGE £16.99!!! But only to realize sell for £7.49.
I slaped half a tube of my Pentium 4 with the origonal fan and heatsink... Its seriusly messy and my fingers all coverd in grey... The compund is a cement like liquid. Its soft if you squeeze it, and its easily spreadable buy use ONE finger as it will take a while to wash off. One tube is enough for about 3 pentium 4 treatments and about 6 AMD treatments. The compound is in my guess conducts electricity so its a bad idea to go crazy with it. The effects of this thermal compund ar tremendous. It had K.Oed 20C right off my CPU. I have noticed a slight differecnce in heavy gaming. 1) The game doesnt slow down when played for 2hours. 2) The feeling that your CPU is going to melt is gone. 3) The computer noe rarely freezes momentaraly when the game ends.
I have also upgraded mt CPU about 3 weeks from writing this. The compound was still there but its not greyish silver. Its black. I scraped it off the heat sink and put the rest of the tube of compund in.
-The equvelent of a boxer in terms of CPU heat
-Easy to use and lasts quite long
-Kinda messy to start with
-Brilliant if not great product!

Apply liberally to the top of your processor. you do NOT need to spread this around with your finger, just make sure there is enough that when you push the fan down it will completely cover the top of the processor. This compound is 99% micronised silver and forms an airtight layer between your processor and heat sink/fan, this means the heat is dissipated much faster leading to a cooler, more efficient and longer lasting processor life.

Over time this will solidify, but that is absolutely fine and causes no problems. At 99% silver, this is about as good as you are likely to get at this price level, I always use it.

One of the best! 27 Jun 2011

I recently had my PS3 experience the yellow light of death and being a computer guy looked up some quick info on the cause and realized I needed thermal compound. I was a little strapped for cash so I went down to radio shack and grabbed some of their cheaper compound hoping I could at least temporarily solve the issue and get back to playing. Well it lasted about 2 days before I had the same problem. So I saved up a few more bucks and ordered this compound knowing that silver has a higher conductance and is better for heat sink installation. I was not disappointed when I put this on although I had to use the whole tube because the PS3 has a CPU and a GPU that both need the compound. Long story short, I got the old compound cleaned off and put this new compound on and the PS3 has been running like a champ since.

SO, to anyone that needs thermal compound I highly recommend you get this and not the cheaper silicon based competitor. It's a difference of a few bucks but it makes a HUGE difference in the performance of your CPU!

This paste is still keeping my ps3 going! I have to dust it out now and then but that's typical. I haven't had any overheating issues since I installed this, just make sure you don't leave any air pockets when you put it on! I still give it a 5/5 almost two years after I needed it!

OK, but overpackaged. 27 Oct 2010

This stuff is Antec's Formula 5 STC (Silver Thermal Compound), and the part number accurately reflects this. Another reviewer said he was expecting Antec Formula 7, which is based on diamond dust.

The two mildly annoying things about this product are 1) the tiny amount of actual product received, which is maybe a third of the volume of the syringe it is supplied in, and 2) the comparatively huge clamshell package used to encase the syringe. C'mon Antec, in this day and age you can do better than that - it's a waste of raw materials and energy. I'm docking one star just for that.

The product itself? Seems to work just fine. Antec say it is 88% (by weight) micronized silver, which is a near ideal thermal transfer medium. Hope it doesn't dry out - if it does, I'll try to remember to update this review.
Great support and works well... 15 Jun 2011

Normally if you're going to install a new heatsink, you wouldn't want to use the thermal compounds that would come with it.
Antec Silver thermal compound is made for the cpu and heatsink to conduct the heat better allowing the cpu to run at cooler temperature when it's taking a lot of stress.
Definitely works well, and you don't really need to use the entire thing for one CPU so you could save some for later.
Works great 9 Jun 2009

I don't know what the fuss is about 7 vs 5, but this works great for me. Literally dropped my CPU temperature 10 degrees celsius and now the fans aren't trying to spin their way out of the case anymore.

I recommend replacing the usual OEM thermal padding on most new computers and cpus with this.

droped the temp on my intel duo from 75c to 35c. (i think the heat sink was loose before i used this stuff)
