Sorry sport, you will probably not get a decent reply most on this site will be happy to tell you about Arctic silver 5 or Shin-etsu or some other high quality TIM. Most like me would not have known that Radioshack even sold that stuff.

Its great for sticking Amplifier Transistors to the little heat transfer fins in some older electronics but I am pretty sure it is very low on the performance scale compared to Artic silver or even oem TIM's

I would avoid it for PC use if I were you good quality TIMs can be had for only a few buck. I have been using Arctic Silver 5 for years never had an issue and the tube for about $10. You can find other decent performing TIMs for even less check out this article...http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.ph...&limitstart=12

is it the silicon stuff in a tube? post a pic next time. If so, I used it on my pentium D cuz i was dumb and RS didn't carry as5 at the time. I applied it pretty crappily and it was enough to keep it under max temp. That's all i can tell you as it was in a Dell and temps couldn't be read.
