I had never heard of this (I know crazy right) instead of paste it is a pad. Does anyone know if this is effective because it sure looks easy.

I went ahead and purchased some from FrozenCPU.com; all my parts to my new computer should be in within the next couple of weeks. I'll give the stuff a shot and see how well it performs compared to paste.

Did you ever try the thermal pads on your cpu?

Not yet, haven't got my CPU yet. Don't worry, I'll give you a head's up when I manage to get everything set up.

Can't wait to try it out. I've not had the chance yet to try to apply thermal paste/grease to a chip yet, so if this thing is quick and easy to apply, and keeps my chip cool, I'll just stick with pads and have grease as a back-up.

I believe this is for chips that need cooling but don't have a precise height, like ram chips on a video card.

I asked about thermal pads a few months ago on another forum, the response I got was that thermal pads are not as effective as thermal paste.
