i was looking around for some thermal paste and found this

http://www.amazon.com/Silver-CMQ2-25G-Ceramique-Tri-Lin...

is this really 25g of thermal paste? it seems to good to be true for $7.50 about, when 2.5g can run you $5. im not overclocking or anything extreme, i just need some stuff to replace paste from 2007 ish. if it is im just gonna get this, it will probably get atleast 15 processors, maybe even more

I'm not seeing anything about 25 grams. The 25G is simply part of the product number. Judging by the markings on the syringe in the picture it's only 2-2.5 grams.

25 grams would be close to a lifetime supply for most people and would probably dry up before you could use all of it.

Depends on how much you (over)use on each application. I've got a 2.5 gram syringe of Arctic Silver 5 that I've gotten ~20 cpu installs out of and there's still compound left. Doesn't take much.
