Hi, I am about to remove the heat spreader on my presario 701FR Notebook and have been informed that I need to replace the thermal pad, I have read in other forums that the mylar lined ones used by compaq are useless and I am wondering that if this is the case should I use thermal paste instead or buy thermal pads from an electronics outlet as they state that they change when the processor is first used and release a compound that fills the gaps, they are made by AkASA.

The packet says:

• This new heat exchange material called Thermal Interface Material provides a great link between the heat sink and the processor

• When the thermal material heats up to the optimium temperature it will go through a phase change and mould itself perfectly to the heatsink base and the CPU core surface

• 5 pack of replacement thermal pads

• Suitable for all heatsink types

All advice will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Peter.

I would personally stick with Arctic Silver 5 or Arctic Silver Ceramique...There is a reason that most of us use it...

It works, reliably, every time as long as you follow the instructions...

Hi and thanks for the advice which I have taken, I have just purchased a 3.5g tube of Arctic Silver 5 on the net.

Thanks a million for the help.
