    Presumptively, he meant in terms of an old partial tube he already had from previous work. Otherwise, this is most def not a good sign --- LMAO!

    It's not electrically conductive, but it is heat conductive:

    Arctic Silver Incorporated - Céramique 2

    Extract on coverage of small tube:

    Coverage Area:
    A 3.5 gram syringe contains enough compound to cover at least 15 to 25 small CPU cores, or 6 to 10 large CPU cores, or 2 to 5 heat plates. At a layer 0.003" thick, the 3.5 gram syringe will cover approximately 16 square inches.

    ah yes! lol.. but they still state its not good to bridge any kind of path. The first RROD I fixed I smothered the gpu and got it all over the mini chips on there and lets just say... no morw worky.. lol
    Not Electrically Conductive:
    Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.
    (While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here
