I need to clean my pc and add some thermal paste for processor and GPU and i was wondering if someone can recommend what thermal paste to use.
Also i am planning of blowing the dust out of the pc with compressed air do you have any advice on this?
One final thing how do you apply the thermal paste in an X shape or on the whole surface of the processor?
- I decided to go with an Arctic Silver mx-4 thermal paste for the processor and gpu.
Found this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBS57bwa_To which is a very good comparison of options to help pick a thermal paste.
Also for cleaning i will go with this method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NnbrfDiL94 but remove the CPU cooler CPU ram and GPU and maybe remove the HDD and then blow away the dust.
Also don’t blow from the outside of your computer power source, blow it from the inside and if it is really dusty open it and clean it properly.
This is what i am going to do.
Thanks in advance
