OCZ Freeze E expiration date?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought OCZ Freeze E thermal grease like back in 2007 only used 3-4 times before but there is still lot of past left in the tube so I'm wondering is it safe to use?

Any one know if there is expiration date for OCZ freeze E?

Pretty sure thermal paste doesn't expire, unless it's silicon based and in that case it will dry out unless kept sealed.

OCZ Freeze isn't silicon based (along with most other enthusiast pastes) so it won't expire.

I've had mine for 2.5 years and it still works like a charm

It does have a shelf life of 24months, it should work..just may not be as ideal as when it was first opened.
