Thermal Grease shelf life or experation?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there a shelf life for thermal grease? I bought some Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound back in 2009 and used it once. I just got a replacement HS and wanted to use this again since i got good numbers off of it before. Does this stuff go bad? tongue.gif I couldnt find Tuniq's site to look up any info. Its not hardened and is still all silvery gloopy wonderful liquid.

Thoughts?

should actually be fine
stuff that came with my Noctua still works after 3 years, and so does my Shin Etsu that I bought from OCN back in 2007.

the SHin etsu I needed to warm up a bit in the tube first, warm water did the trick.
