Need new thermal paste for a laptop, concerned about longevity - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Hmm, I still remember my pentium ii laptop. I had to literally use ice cubes in a bag to prevent it from over heating. But for a laptop these days, just about any TIM that doesn't harden would do, that of course rules out thermal adhesives, and gallium based liquid metal. I've been using Ceramique 2 on my 2010 laptop for more than 2 years, it works fine, and so far is still in a semi liquid semi solid form I last checked. Only reason I used it was because I just bought it at the time.

I use it because I'm too lazy to buy more, it does its job decent enough. The 2010 Macbook Pro 13in doesn't create a lot of heat.
