Laptop + Shin Etsu

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
K I got my laptop in Jan of 2007. Asus Z96Js series. Core Duo Yonah core, 1.86 with ATI x1600 mobility and it has served me well.

I decided to take it apart tonight to clean the innards and check the stock thermal paste. Wow, dust-alufagus. So i dusted the thing out, and removed the heat spreader and fan. The stock thermal paste was crust, like on a used sock near a teenagers computer. So I used my AS 1 and 2 cleaner. Applied Shin-Etsu, and wow. I wish I could have got some before temps.

Before w/ stock paste

Idle: 51/51
Load: 71/71

After w/ Shin Etsu

Idle: 32/32
Load: 49/49

Plus, I think there was a small kitten or woodland creature inside the fan housing, but now, my lap does not feel like I am nuking the twig and berries anymore.

Yeah, +1 for Shin Etsu.
