Default Thermal Paste Supplement

I took apart the old P4 today.
Thought I'd change the thermal paste and just give it a general clean.

I cleaned everything up, then realised "OH NOES, I HAVE NO PASTEZ"

Being lazy, I used copper paste.

Was it wrong of me to do so?

It seems to be working fine though

What is copper paste?

Anyway as long as your cpu isn't overheating and the paste isn't oozing out over the motherboard it should be fine.

Well, it's copper in an oozy liquidy form in a tube and when its put onto something it drys?
It's in a form like toothpaste kinda!

Copper conducts heat + electricity well so I thought that might be good =\

but no, it's not oozing anywhere.

If it conducts electricity then turn off your rig, go to the nearest computer shop by a tube of thermal paste. Trust me i don't want to see you come back saying "Guys you said it was ok an my rig just exploded".

That's what I was unsure of.
If the fan would cool it or not...

I wouldn't blame my explosions on you guys =]
....Not that it would be such a mishap if it did explode -_-

I'll buy some Thermal Paste tomorrow maybe =]


I'm off to bed.
Night.
