I saw these in my local computer shop and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them..I also heard that you can't use this TIM with aluminum heat sinks..but when I visit their website they don't mention anything about it..

No its a thermal paste..supposedly the best because it literally bonds your heatsink and cpu together minimizing or eliminating all air pockets..however the pad application makes installation much easier and dummy proof...

If your looking into a metal type, try to find some Liquid Metal PRO. it literally is a liquid and covers the whole entire CPU with ease.

the only part that sucks is the clean up for when your reseating or switching sinks.

CL Liquid Metal Pro is really hard to clean up and leaves behind a thin layer of white stuff on the base of the heatsink and CPU. Many people complain about cleaning it up.

I wouldn't use it dude. I heard that stuff permanently bonds itself to your heatsink and CPU and is literally impossible to remove. Not only that, I also heard that it doesn't do any better than OCZ Freeze.

In reviews, it usually beats OCZ Freeze by a degree or so. Not worth the headache in my opinion.

On CL's website (http://www.coollaboratory.com/en/product_metalpad.shtml), they say the pad is OK to use on aluminum -

The Liquid MetalPad can be used with all on the cooling market commercially available materials, for instance aluminum or copper!
