I've been using Arctic Silver for quite some time now and it's hard to think that someone has finally put out a product that can beat what has come to be known as the industry standard in Thermal Interface Material. But the numbers of our tests speak for themselves and we have a new clear-cut winner. TherMagic not only has what it takes to be considered for use in the Power System, it also has the performance to be the best there is.
There is the possible problem, however, of this product not being useful if you're still using some of the older aluminum heatsinks. Granted, most folks have gone to copper coolers, but I know of quite a few who are still using the FOP38 and the WBK38 sinks. Both of these fall squarely into the "uncoated aluminum" category, so there is a limiting factor for overall usefulness by everyone.
Of course, if you happen to be in the majority that has upgraded to copper (or at least a coated aluminum material) heatsink, then you're in like gold. And the TIM is also competitively priced. As I wrote this review, I took a gander at the Evergreen website and they have the goop for sale right now. They list it at a retail price of US$8.99 but have an instant rebate that brings the cost to a very affordable US$6.99 per 2.5 gram syringe. This will be enough to coat about 25-30 processor cores, so it will last you a while.
Bottom line...If you're looking for the absolute best performing TIM that is currently available for your precious processor, then order some TherMagic now! The cost is competitive with the Arctic Silver line and the performance puts it at the top of the class. You simply can't go wrong with this stuff.
