    You could do that, but it's a big hassle to clean that stuff off in case you want to repad/repaste and thermal conductivity of Panasonic pads is on the higher side as compared to other pastes that are available in the market. Plus they are reusable so I tend to lean more towards these as compared to pastes. Plus, it's a cleaner build with very little mess.

    Wow, that's too much! Don't you qualify for free shipping for above 50 dollars worth of goods though? I always get free fedex shipping on all my orders.

    Free means they use USPS, I may as well goto the moon and back before the local courier that handles USPS orders brings it in.
    It’s either fedex, ups , Dhl or assured 3rd parties , everything else is prayers

    I will go with alphacool 17wmk and manage that in the mean time

    Nope, it's Fedex for me. (I'm not in US). I received all my orders via FedEx priority shipping that was free! ;)

    I'd go with thermal paste. The pad was very thin, I was expecting it to be thicker. The results aren't very good. My friend also tried in a desktop with a quad core Ryzen 3 and had similar results.



    Go to 3:40 for results
