Sure thing. I didn't even notice that price comparison...$67.74 with free shipping on Buy.com is a good deal.

Yes it comes with some pre-applied. Also remember if you need to purchase more there is no tremendous difference in thermal paste. The way you apply it and on what your applying to is gonna make all the difference. So when people say Artic Silver 5, MX-2, MX-4, Shin Etsu, or whichever of the top notch paste, there may be a +/- diff of about 2c at most between them all.

Some of them last longer, are effective longer, and are therefore a better value. I use IC Diamond and don't have to change it more than every 8-10 months or so.

Lol. I guess I didnt think of that, because I can never keep the same cpu in a board for that long.
