Cooler master gets tired of telling parents about thermal compound, changes tube design

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm not sure if Coolermaster is joining the ranks of Wendy or something but they've put out a tweet about a new thermal compound tube design because " we're getting tired of having to explain to parents that their kid isn't using drugs.".
Maybe we'll see less people complaining about youtubers applying paste wrong, one can hope atleast.

I always spread it a little, usually just by slapping the cooler on top of it and sliding it around a little.

My man! We are in the same boat. I never spread. I always get getter results, when not spreading.

Always funny when parents can't trust their kids when they say that tubes of thermal paste are actually tubes of thermal paste and not some mystery drug. Like come the fuck on, it isn't that hard to read the tube.

The way society is today, everything is hard. As I keep telling people over and over again, common sense isn't common, lol.

It could be a fake label as far as they know. I always label my drugs as thermalpaste.

Dear Mom.

I bought some cheapo thermal paste when i was in high school and there was no label on it, i put them inside my drawer and my parents legitly believed is was drugs.

I almost get a beating.

Please bear with me for a second: 

How does this new thing look less druggy than the old tubes?

It's flat headed, hardly the right shape or size to be injecting drugs into arms.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

TIL: they didn't think that the stuff was heated on a spoon but directly injected.

 

Oh boy. What a time to be alive.

I'm glad my mother knows what Thermal paste is, otherwise this would be an even bigger problem... 😂

To be fair "thermal paste" pretty much gives it away.

You'd think that, wouldnt you?

It's sad, honestly. But then again I've seen crazier things for parents to get upset about so...

Just to insert logic which I know is asking a lot sometimes. At a glance yes, the tube kinda looks like it could be a drug syringe. But as soon as you looks closer you should be able to tell its not as there is no needle.

I feel like CM's post was more for the meme than anything else!

I would hope its more of a Meme but I sadly can see it actually being an issue depending on the person. These days it feels that we are lacking of logic skills as a society at least based on my observation.
