The Coollaboratory paste comes in a generic syringe complete with a hypodermic needle at the end (eek). You will probably want to make sure that you always replace the cap on the syringe after use, otherwise the experience of being jabbed and injected with liquid metal will probably not be a good one.
Interestingly Coollaboratory Liquid Pro is not a paste like the rest of the thermal compounds in this review, but a liquid. This may leave you with images of water dripping out from between your processor and heatsink, but 'Liquid Pro' is quite different.
When you squeeze the liquid out of the syringe, it forms an almost perfect ball which looks very much like a ball of solder. This ball of liquid metal can then be spread over the surface of the CPU using the tip of the hypodermic needle. In total, it took me 20 minutes to completely cover the surface of the heatspreader. Many people have reported success spreading 'Liquid Pro' using a q-tip or plastic bags, but i didnt have any joy with either of these methods.
It is also worth mentioning that this compound cannot be used with aluminium heatsinks
. as they will be corroded by gallium inside the liquid. Copper and Silver heatsinks are not affected as they do not react with gallium.
