Artic Alumina Thermal Paste

You know I was skeptical when I bought a cheap tube of Artic Alumina thermal paste from for around 4 dollars (shipping included). But after using it on a older Intel E3200 CPU I’m quite pleased with what I received for the four bucks, the temperatures on the CPU with Artic Alumina and the stock heat sink stay at around 38 to 42°C under load. By the way I had re-seat the E3200 due to dust accumulation (yeah, it was that bad). If you are looking for cheap thermal paste, the Artic Alumina seems to be a good buy, you’ll probably get around two applications from the tube.
