I agree. As a stop gap measure if you ran out of thermal compound then yes, otherwise no. Any paste that is composed of water will dry out and leave the compound useless in heat transferral property.

i'm not really sure about that sort of thing. to me it wouldn't even be worth trying seeing as you can pick up a tube of thermal paste for as low as 5 dollars. might not be the best stuff, but still alot more practical and safer than using toothpaste.
