@Thefong: Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is $9.05 an Amazon atm too, and is better. Would recommend just getting that instead. - https://www.amazon.com.au/Thermal-Grizzly-Kryonaut-Grease-Pa...

Stats by @crys:
Here's a a great roundup of thermal pastes for 2021 for those interested:

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X @ 4.3 GHz 1.4V (air cooling):

Intel Core i9 [email protected] GHz 1.35V (air cooling)

I've linked directly to the benchmarks for aircooled AMD and Intel. Feel free to check the rest. Arctic Silver now ranks amongst the bottom of the list compared to modern alternatives.

      There are definitely a lot of much better thermal pastes around today though. This is adequate but on the lower end of the scale by current standards.

    How long can this stuff be stored for future use once opened?

      Several years at minimum. Most pastes keep for quiet some time, although some may form a crust.

      I stored mine for 11 years. Was still good and worked. In comparison, my 11 year old NT-H1 was all dried up and could not be pushed out of the syringe.
