The product is shipped in a blister pack front with cardboard backing.
On the back there is a simple set of directions for use. Check that out, 30% silver content!
Compared to the 22 gram syringe of Ceramique, the Frostbite is quite small…. but goo things often come is small packages. [Editor's note: I don't care if that's a typo, the pun is too good to resist.]
It is a single 2 gram syringe, which should be enough for 5 or more GPU applications, or 10 or more CPU applications, using my application method (dot for CPU, small X for GPU). The back side of the syringe allows you to see the amount of compound left. It might seem too simple to be a big deal, but there have been many times we’ve wished for a level indicator — it’s nice to know whether you have enough TIM left for your next session. Good idea, eVGA!
At room temperature (24C in this case), the Ceramique is very thick, and squeezing it out of the tube requires patience. By stark contrast, the Frostbite is almost runny. However, syringe operation was smooth, and I didn’t get any fluid at the top, nor any squirting messes from the rough syringe action I’ve experienced from other compounds. Another big win for Frostbite!
To better show consistency differences between our competitors, each was smeared across the paper towel. The Ceramique wanted to stay in a ball and just roll. Very little smeared past the first rotation as my finger rolled off the top of the clump. The Frostbite didn’t soak into the towel, but smeared across the entire length of the movement. It remained very opaque, suggesting its ability to be spread very thin, a big bonus for those with very flat surfaces in a highly tuned daily system or gaming machine.
