Dell/Shin-Etsu Microsi silicone compound

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Like anyone who's ever serviced Dell PCs, I've got a metric ton of these little blue syringes full of the stuff. Is it any good for enthusiast use? I'm using AS3 at home but I've run out and might need something in a pinch.

I know Shin Etsu is good stuff, but from what I have seen on my Aurora, it doesn't work as good as others like OCZ Freeze or IC Diamond (which is what I currently use). And its really hard to get off the cooler and CPU when the time comes.

It does the job better than generic compound if that is what you are asking though.

Ahh thanks. I also found this on their website. Appears to be talking about the correct stuff.

Yea that is the stuff. biggrin.gif

Its not really that bad. It came stock on my rebranded H50 (Asetek) and did a pretty good job for stock paste from Dell. But I still wiped it off and applied IC Diamond to my chip.

The syringe from the OP pic is Shin Etsu lower grade TIM, cheaper in price. If you removed the stock paste and applied with X23-7783D, that's a different kettle of fish. Although no matter what TIM is used, the main importance is the application.

NB: Wait until the new Shin Etsu X23-7921-5 reaches Retail, it maybe even better. If you really need the very best then look no further than Indigo Extreme, but be warned that it is not a paste.

I found more data in the BenchmarkReviews.com 33-way TIM comparison. It turns out this stuff is actually pretty good, and I simply cannot beat the price (free).
