i was looking around for some thermal paste and found this

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.

that makes sense, i thought the 25g was saying 25 grams. thats why i was confused. thanks for the help, i guess i might be crazier than i thought :)

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

yea thatd be alot of paste. how many uses do you think i'll get out of that syringe? id rather get a bigger syringe than one of those tiny ones

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.

alright, ive only done it twice so it may take me a few tries to get it just right, and i probably need the pratice. thanks for all the help! :)
