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

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

Default VEGEMITE

Quote:
VEGEMITE :- The famous Aussie spread! The great Australian icon has been around for more than 80 years. Made in Australia, by Australians and for Australians. One of the world's richest known sources of Vitamin B. 24 million jars are sold each year in supermarkets alone.

"It's an Australian icon," says expat author Kathy Lette. "Right up there with Phar Lap and Thorpedo and Kylie and Kidman."

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.
