Ok Steve never heard of that thermal I shall go take a look sounds interesting
Yes well Toshiba specify some Japanese stuff on their laptops I cannot remember the name of it but whatever they use is usually like rubber on the GPU chip and hard as hell on the CPU chip which incidentally is the silicon chip and doesn't have a heatsink like normal processors we see. See pic of what my old A200 looked like.
I replace both with Arctic Silver usually but have use Noctua NT-H1.
Just remembered it is Shin Etsu compound Toshiba use.
So if the Toshiba experience is anything to go by Intel could be just as scrimpy with what they use.
