CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
Well, we ended up with no clear winner here. Given the fact that the Zalman offering performed equally as well as one of the industry leaders, it's obviously an outstanding product. The fact that the ZM-STG1 is also almost twice as expensive as its opponent, takes some of the shine off of it. The brush applicator is a definite plus, and I also found that the Zalman Super Grease was much easier to remove after use. This would be a boon to someone who swaps coolers or processors often. A more aggressive price point would go a long way to make Zalman's ZM-STG1 Super Thermal Grease an outstanding value.
- Excellent performance
- Brush eases application
- Easy clean up
