Going to see how well this performs before thinking about replacing my trusty MX-4. I hope it is better

Funny how they market it as "easier to apply" when MX-4 is like the easiest paste to apply EVER. How bad ARE people at this stuff, LOL! I used to swear by MX-4, but switched to Kingpin KPX for a try, probably not gonna switch back. KPX rocks.

Well Kingpin KPX also costs a lot more than MX-4, so there's that...

I'm still amazed at how the hell this "tutorial" made it on the net, I mean.... The Verge reports on a lot of PC orientated stuff so at first I genuinely thought that video was some type of satire piece but nope, The Verge is just another "woke" publication who think they know everything while doing everything wrong and absolutely cannot take criticism.

I still haven't seen this video...

On topic though I just repasted my 8700k and 1080 last week with MX4. If people think it's difficult to apply then idk how people function. You aim it where you want it and you just... Push some out.. that's all it takes... You can test fit it then take it apart and see if it was enough/to much and adjust accordingly.

If you're that poor that you can't afford decent thermal paste, you're in the wrong hobby, LOL! Cost should NEVER be a factor in something so cheap.


MX-4 is the easiest paste I've ever applied and I'm a spreader too, that BAFFLES me that people find that difficult. Faith in humanity steadily waning!!

Well what does if one can afford the Kingping paste have to with this at all?... You said that you switched to the Kingping paste over the MX-4 due to it was apparently better.

I simply said it should be - due to it costs a lot more than the MX-4.

It has nothing to do if one can afford it or not.
