    Spoil? Not as such. They probably shouldn't be frozen though. At some point the materials will separate and you will get an oil and a more hard crumbly substance with the other chemicals. With regular bearing grease this occurs at around -80°F (If my memory is correct) but I haven't even the slightest clue what low temp would compromise thermal grease. Since it isn't intended for cold temps it is entirely possible that it wouldn't be very tolerant.

    More likely though since some types of thermal past use chemicals that can easily evaporate over time (they are in fact solvents and designed to do just this) if you break their seal it is only a matter of time before whatever unused portion reaches optimum operating consistency due to evaporation.

    Also I'd take this opportunity to note that you should be careful to not get any of the metal based compounds on any circuitry as the metal based are electrically conductive while conversely the non-metallic are insulative.

    My daughter & her two cats would seriously go nuts over one of those (and prolly the dog for that matter, she's sometimes not quite sure what species she is with growing up two older cats) but we don't have the room for something that mahoosive. They have to settle for something a quarter the floor space & a third of the height of that.

    AS5 is gloopy when new so I can't see it being an issue. AS3 was thinner, I'd heard that it could separate but I've never had that issue or heard of anyone that actually did, either.

    Decided to pull the trigger on an Xbox One Assassin's Creed bundle (without the Kinect):
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16868105119

    This, of course, will be used alongside with the new version of the X360 that I got last week. Wow, seems that I got one hell of a Christmas Bonus from work, so why not get both? :)

    I have an old netbook that no longer can keep up with things, so I tried to get a new one with similliar features but more current hardware. That turned out to be essentially impossible unless you buy an expensive subnotebook, because everyone seems to have fallen into insanity mode when it comes to designing affordable laptops.

    So I got this instead, which at least has the advantage of a full HD screen over the others:

    Toshiba Canvio 2.5" USB3 500GB External HDD
    [​IMG]

    As I'm getting back into computer repair I needed this drive for OS install images, install packages for things like Microsoft Office, and data transfers/backups.

    I made a special 50GB partition at the beginning of the drive and used YUMI to load images for Ubuntu, Elementary, Clonezilla, System Rescue CD. It also has images for every edition of Windows, starting from XP and going to 8.1, in both x86 and x64. No matter what I need to install I can do it from this bootable partition. OS X install images are next; I just haven't figured out how yet.

    Have you considered something like this?
    http://www.zalman.com/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=750

    It emulates a USB drive based on ISOs you copy onto the HDD.

    All the pieces together finally. I did end up tidying the cables up a bit more after I took the picture.
