Yea but I highly doubt they are as good as mx-2 or the others I mentioned. Not a big deal your computer will probably blow up.

oh and you don't nee to of them lol. you need about a pea size drop and thats it. 2 tubes will be good for like 20 rebuilds but I wouldn't recommend using that stuff anyways. It probably works but I wouldn't expect it to work very well
