Sure, I guess, but even at worst case scenario (using given source) the BEST performing coolabratory
was only 4 degrees better than a very reputable brand. The worst performing coolabratory
was only one degree better. AS5 was 5.4 degrees different.
Hardly a HUGE difference. Especially since the percentage of difference in temps from TIMs can be as little as 4% in overall temperature from the top performing coolabratory
If you need the performance then go for it.
But the best advice out there is go for the cheapest reputable
brand. (I didn't say anything about generic brands, which you mentioned, and I was being sarcastic about the mustard.)
I don't know current prices on all tims, but I am definitely NOT going to pay even $10 more for a 2 or 3 degree drop in temps based on someone elses claims that I may not even be able to reproduce myself.SOURCE
