          Comments about RadioShack Heat Sink Grease (6g):

          I have an old tube of 276-1372, bought around year 2000. The old product came in a metal tube. It contained a pure, opaque, white thermal grease.

          RS is now selling a clearly different product. I just bought a tube of 276-1372. It comes in a plastic tube. The paste is thin and translucent. More clear than white. I think they are now selling a cheaper, watered-down paste with less filling.

          Its like the difference between whole milk and skim milk. We'll see if the new stuff performs.

          Comments about RadioShack Heat Sink Grease (6g):

          In shopping out a thermal compound for my barebone PC kit build (AMD Athlon II X4 640 95W quad core), I dug my tube out. Same item number as the one pictured but a different container.

          I had a troublesome 100W mini PA system (Carvin AG-100D) that was thermaling off frequently. It had been knocked over and fell a few feet, so I presumed the worst and just was patient about it. When I finally opened it up, the impact either jarred all of the the old thermal compound loose OR it wasn't ever there (I tend to believe the latter). I put a slightly heavy dose (knowing how the manufacturer originally did it on the production line). The dynamic range and S/N improved instantaneously.

          I feel confident that the compound does not melt or spread when heated and I will put it on my CPU with confidence.

          Excellent value

          Comments about RadioShack Heat Sink Grease (6g):

          Been using this thermal compound in PC's for years.
          I have this compound between an overclocked Core 2 Quad (Q6600) and its heat sink. Core temps are the same as systems that use triple the price silver based compounds. The key is a very thin application layer.

            Comments about RadioShack Heat Sink Grease (6g):

            I have used the RadioShack heat sink grease for many years now in all sorts of projects. From power supplies, to audio amplifiers to computers it has never let me down. You simply cannot go wrong with this grease.

            You can spend a lot more money on fancier heat sink compounds (or greases) that claim to offer better performance or feature fancy formulations, but I have yet to find any that work better than this product.

            The only bad thing is that some of the RadioShack stores in my area did not seem to be carrying it any longer. Thankfully, the supply has returned to these stores and they are once again carrying it.

                        I was considering replacing a PC that would shut down after a short period of time. Using this compound in conjunction with replacing a heat sink mount, put me back in business in short order. I was overjoyed to discover a simple solution to what I thought was a catastrophic situation.
