I've been spreading paste for years, always found it more consistent too.

I was running Thermalright CF3 because I ran out of AS5, which is ok because I probably wont use it again.. not that there is anything wrong with it. I also ran out of CF3 so I got a tube of TF8, and so far I think its great.

thermalright.com/product/tf8-thermal-paste-5-8g/

I also put it on my 980 after I wiped the CF3 away, and its pretty good, I would recommend it.

Probably the best stuff I've used so far to be honest. Though my experience is limited.

I have quite a few tubes of different TIM. Most of the time I just use AS5. I got the biggest tube of it and have been using it for years .... 5 I think. I have not been building or upgrading my PCs lately so I still have some left.

I also use a cheap $3 huge tube of thermal grease from China EBay. I use it when I do quick testing/troubleshooting. I think it works.... It is kind of runny but it looks like grease lol
