It'll take some burn-in time to have best performance, but if you've been using AS5 for other things, you're used to that.

been using it since 2004 lol bought 10 tubes of it on sale back in 06 12g tubes and i still have 3 left lmao

I used a tube of AS5 and it was very solid thumb.gif I have also tried IC Diamond 7 carat, a couple of stock pastes that came with blocks, and Arctic MX-2. The MX-2 seems to be a degree or so better and is much easier to spread than the IC. I'd recommend it but I hear the MX-4 is even better... It wasn't available at my local retailer of choice though mad.gif

Edit: What is the shelf life on TIM anyways? I'm sure 120 grams was a good deal but it may be time to chuck it out, or at least send a tube to me for testing... yes, testing... wink.gif
