I've used NT-H1 for years and love it ... haven't reseated my CPU cooler in about 2.3 years and just as good today as the day I built it (6700K daily @4.7ghz) ... I will certainly be trying the new pastes once I ever have to reseat ... LOL ...

Looks to be better than NT-H1 by a minimal 1°C at least with Ryzen 7 [email protected] (1.375V) and i7-8700k.

The margin is larger with Threadripper 1950X @ 4GHz (xtremesystems review) where the performance difference is about 1.7°C.

edit: also hwcooling testing with varying powers and found it only showed more than 1.7°C improvement at 300W+

So basically and to their credit, exactly as advertised.

I've got to say i started off with a really negative bias towards Noctua.. i found most of their fans over-rated in terms of performance, their prices inexcusable given the alternatives.
While i still feel this way in regard to (most of) their fans, i've come to view the iPPCs as an exception, a marked one. Have slowly replaced everything i had with them and no regrets. If anything, i wish they made a similar off shoot for the 92mm variety

Fast forward it a bit and for reasons i won't bore you with, i'm contacting their service on behalf of another and am blown away by the speed and quality of the response; a bit closer to the present and i need to replace my own cooling system, finally decide to go with a Noctua for a change.
Let me just say i sold my Thermalright the next day and haven't even the slightest inclination of switching or even trying anything else out; well, until an NH-D16s comes out

Still have my gripes (then again, no one's perfect), see fans above; but i can say they've proven -to me personally- that they can be reliable and that's a tall order alright. I respect that a lot.
Re-li-a-ble. The opposite of being in need of assistance and having someone asking you to "pleez say whats your problem"; again that is, 'cause you've already explained it.

Pride, honour and purity.

Not sure about the wipes. Usually I just use coffee filter and some rubbing alcohol.

Don't forget about the Cooler Master Mastergel Maker Nano, it's up there at the top, and about the same price as the others.

Or the king of TIMs itself: iHen-Tech GD900 (amazon/ebay), GD store GD900 or just GD900 (aliexpress), which is the best bang for your back thermal paste in the world. 30g - 3.5 eur/$4 for 4.8W/mK it's a bit worse than MX-2, but not by much.
