Get some Arctic silver 5. Make sure to clean the old paste off with 90% isopropyl.

apparently toothpaste works better than a lot of thermal pastes out there, HOWEVER....it dries out very quickly of course :p

nail polish can be flammable...wouldn't try that personally

I think you might have mis uderstood something nailpolish can take the stuff off.

Apparrently this works better than Thermal Paste. On down side, it evaporates too quickly.

DUDE, I rather be safe that sorry. Get down to jaycar and purchase a tube of thermalpaste.
