Hi!Can anyone tell me where i can buy some Thermal Paste and in particular a lint free cloth. I can't seem to find any of the latter.Cheers :)
Thermal paste PCWorld maybe cloth as well not sure
PC World for the paste, £5.99. and for the cloth, an old cotton T shirt is the best you can get. J.
J-cloths are lint free. Wash them a couple of times first.
an old t-shirt is definitly NOT lint free, use a J-cloth.
Perfectly safe to use an *Old* T shirt that has been washed several times.Cotton will be lint free and is well recommended for cleaning, even for monitor screens, CRT & TFT. This is what I and others have been using for some time now. Regards. J.
My point about washing the J-cloth is to remove the water soluble dressing it has and to soften it, not to remove lint!
Ok, thanks very much you guys.I have a number of old cotton t-shirts lying about so I'll try them. Its just for applying some thermal paste to a Heatsink.CheersEd
If you buy the paste from PC World, it comes with a plastic applicator and a template for correct use and amount of paste to use.If you are applying to a CPU thats been used before, then clean with *Nail varnish remover) first.
Fantastic Djohn.Thanks! Saves all the hassle for a first timer like me. I'll give the pc world stuff a go.Ed
