I have a Toshiba L550 laptop running 64bit 7 on with an i5 430M and have already put in 8GB RAM and just about to slip in an M4 Crucial 128GB for speeding it up.
I would like to swap out the 430M for a i5 560M and the manual tells me to use Shin-etsu thermal compound.
Now apart from where the heck to get it from I am wondering if there is some thing just as good - not that I know much about Shin-etsu as a product.
My usual supplier has several good thermal pastes like Arctic Sliver 5, Noctua NY-H1, Arctic Silver Ceramique, Arctic Silver Alumina Ceramic, Antec Formula 7 and something called Indigo Xtreme which I cannot get the gist of how it works.
I would appreciate some advice on which to use as being a laptop it's not something that can be pulled apart that easily if I have to change out the thermal.
I am not concerned with warranty anymore as it is just about out and as this is the very last Toshiba device I shall ever
buy if it goes bung then it does.
