It's probably cracked to oblivion. You'd probably see better thermals by changing the paste (if you care about that)
Not a bad paste for 4g.NT-H1's unique formula is highly stable over time, even after longer periods of usage. It can be stored at room temperature for at least 3 years and due to the compound’s exceptional curing, bleeding, dry-out and thermal cycling characteristics, it can be used on the CPU for 5 years or more.

Ya, no memory express here in QC.deltatux wrote: ↑ Not only that but Memory Express doesn't have much in terms of stores in Ontario/Quebec. If you're in the GTA either you're willing to drive to Hamilton or pay the $8.99 shipping. When compared to Amazon with free shipping, Memory Express is a raw deal.
Unfortunately, Canada Computers doesn't carry any Arctic Cooling MX-4 or Noctua NT-H1/2 pastes either.

What is the meaning of 2019 edition? Is it different from non-2019 or just 2019 made stock?Patrickpete wrote: ↑ Hey guys, I was a bit hesitant on posting this deal because this is actually 7 cent higher than the average on CCC; however, I realized due to the uncertain times the price hasn't reached this low in a while, so this is pretty decent price if you're in need of a excellent compound soon. Its 15.95 on newegg right now and a totally rip off price on staples and bestbuy. Furthermore, there is 4g in this. That is enough for multiple uses, unlike some other high end brand. Here's an image from CCC. As you can see, it's been hovering pretty high for a long time now; I don't see it going lower anytime soon due to our current predicament.

Plus in Manitoba you can't go into store and buy since it's a non essential, and with lockdown only can pickup. Plus for some live away from big centres so shipping is needed..

The preapplied stuff is fine. It's actually preferable because you are guaranteed it will be the right amount and will be spread evenly. I had preapplied stuff and then I redid it later with brand name Noctua paste, and the results were about the same. People tend to overthink this stuff.

Noctua was my first choice as well, however, there are issues with stock...unless you are willing to pay more, like way more, to 3rd party sellers.warpdrive wrote: ↑ The preapplied stuff is fine.

I will say that you should reapply new paste if it's more than 5 years. The stuff does dry out and becomes less effective. I had a i5-2600k and I saw improvement when I reapplied the paste after 6 years.
For paste, I've always used the Noctua stuff. Works for me
Noctua has their official online store. https://www.amazon.ca/stores/Noctua/pag ... f_=ast_bln if you don't have a store nearby that sells their harder to find stuff
