    Large amounts of TIM!

    I'm in need of a large amount of decent TIM .. my boss was able to get a 4 ounce tube of some off brand stuff for 30$, but he doesn't have access to it anymore.

    So, anyone know where I can get a large amount of TIM for around the same price?

    That tube is HUGE. I used it when I wrote heatsink reviews. Did 30+ mounts and I'm no where near using 1/4 of it.

    I always liked when I bought stuff from thermalright they sent those huge tubes. I guess they figure we like to mount stuff many times

    I can't think of the name of it, there is a TIM that comes in a tub that supposedly performs very well also. Someone else might be able to name it?

    GC Electronics Type 44 comes in an industrial size tub, about 2 cups worth, but I think the 2.5 oz tub is most common.
    I used to build high-end laser systems, and used it all the time. I've used it at home for years too and have NO complaints.

    Petras has 30 gram tubes of MX2 for sale. Not cheap, but it's very good paste. I have one, it's a LOT of paste.
    I want my old title back.
    Old beast is torn down.
    Will update later.

    I have that same tube. Dunno how many years I've had it, but I still have like 1/2 left. Countless applications both Gpus and Cpus and still works great.
