Thermal Pads & Paste
 
Hello everyone. I'm curious to how y'all feel about graphite thermal pads, like this. A buddy mentioned I may be better off using a thermal pad when it comes to replacing the thermal goop in my laptop. I've no experience with thermal pads. I don't know how well they perform when compared to paste, or whether they're better for laptops than paste.

What's the general opinion on this subject?

if you're replacing thermal paste, use thermal paste.

Hey!
so I have used both and my results are:

Thermal Transfer - I have come to realize that paste has always worked better for my applications . Pads are not the worst thing in the world but I advise too stick too paste .

Also keep in mind that Microscopic groves etc are in the CPU , paste fills those better then a pad .

Theirs also a few videos online ( one from jayz2cents ) etc proving that the pads dont work aswell as paste .

Thanks for the quick responses! I'll stick with thermal paste.
