Thermal Grease
« on: October 10, 2014, 10:41:08 AM »
I have just been given an old DELL desktop. I have done a factory reset, updated the BIOS, drivers and Windows updates. All seems fine, it's not the greatest machine, but I'll make use of it  :wink:

However it was probably the worst machine I've ever seen internally, spiders' webs and a warren of dust bunnies  :shocked:
I have carefully cleaned it out, had to remove the fan and heatsink, and now need to refit them. Does this thermal grease look OK? Or does anyone have any recommendations. I can get exactly the same product as shown below at Newegg for £3 in Maplins in the UK, or will I gain anything from spending a bit more? The reviews on Newegg seem pretty good. Thanks.

Samson.

Yeah that should work fine :-)

I always go with what the reviews say, always good to see what others had with it before you try it  :wink:

Hi Shane,

Thanks for that. Reviews are always helpful, especially when it is a product that you (well, I) do not purchase everyday  :wink:
I'll pick some up in the week.
