    I like the way it spreads better than almost any I have tried.
    After a year or so of usage on my FX 6350 cooler came off very easy and it was practically perfectly spread less than 1mm from processor edges and could almost see thru it, it was so thinly spread. It took a lot of alcohol to clean up.

    I used that Silver stuff and just put an amount on it about the size of a postage stamp. I have not had any issues with it.

    It's pretty thick but flows perfectly when pressed by the cooler.

    The Noctua does seem to be thicker than Arctic Silver, but seems to spread better.

    I wasn't all that sure how good it was for liquid coolers until you said it was good :)

    FWIW, I still believe it is not the TIM but is the thick glue they use. It holds the IHS too high so it doesn't make great contact with the die. Remember along with changing the paste, they usually remove the old glue and use a smaller and thinner glue to put it back on. No proof or anything, just my opinion.

    Hi,
    The costs of paste is so miniscule that highend we're only talking about a couple of dollars on 1-2K systems :)

    The paste Intel uses is more for durability than anything else. But, I contend that if delidding brings temps down 25 degrees, the difference in the best and worst thermal paste is not even close to 25.

    I would believe this as it seems to be the process of putting it together and it maybe not making good contact all around

    I have heard of people have great temps not everyone has a Fireball in a 8700k or any new CPU out but the one's that do maybe it's like you said poor construction
