Nothing is gonna beat tim, Other stuff tends to dry out and then your temperatures skyrocket. most fixes are only temporary.

i only need it for my modem and changing the Vaseline every few weeks is okay and its a lot better then the modem dropping connection every few hours. i won't use it on my CPU i got zalmen TIM on it.
