Works at first then dries up and overheats components.
I bought this thermal grease to use on a pair of video cards and a water cooling kit. At first it worked great, temperatures went from 70-80°c under load with the stock cooler to 50-60° with the water cooling (during the summer), but then as time passed the temperatures slowly crept up. Eventually it was the middle of winter and even in a cold room the temperatures on the video card never went under 75°c.I took everything apart to troubleshoot and found that the thermal grease had dried out completely. The compound was powdery and some of it broke off in chunks. I cleaned it up, applied a different compound, put everything back together. This was last january, and almost a year later the gpu temperatures are still stable at 50-60°c which leads me to believe that the arctic silver alumina compound was at fault. I still have a full tube left but its probably better off in the trash.
