AC-MX2 looks liquidy?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had this tube of MX-2 for a long time, I'd say a year now... maybe. I want to do a re-seat of my H70 because I'm not entirely happy with my temperatures at the moment, plus I heard the method in which the H70 shin-etsu was pre-applied wasn't really too good.

So I did a test on a piece of tissue just to see if the paste was still good, and it looks a little liquidy?

Would it still be okay to use?

It's only like that because some of the fluid got separated. Just push a little of it out and it will be fine. Or you could just mess around with the plunger and mix it up again. Same thing happens to As5.

The best way to avoid that type of separation is to store the stuff upside down (with the cap face up and the plunger towards the ground). That way the fluid won't collect at the cap.

Pretty ez.
