Pc Thermal Paste
The Central Processing Unit, or CPU, is the brain of your computer, but its massive volume of operations per second generates a great deal of heat. For the processor to operate at peak efficiency, it must be properly cooled. This is where the CPU thermal paste comes in.
A high-quality CPU thermal paste will fill in microscopic gaps between the chip and its heat sink, ensuring an even distribution of heat and eliminating air bubbles that hinder coolant flow. The paste is available in syringes or jars, and it typically comes with an applicator (a plastic spreader, not cotton buds) to ensure that the compound is applied evenly to both surfaces. There are several application methods, including vertical line, middle dot, surface spread, and vertical/horizontal spread. Which one you choose depends on the specific CPU and cooler you have, as well as your comfort level with the process.
Besides being effective at reducing CPU temperatures, an ideal thermal paste will also be electrically conductive or electrically insulative, depending on the type of processor you have. The most common types of thermal paste are metal-based, liquid metal TIMs and ceramic-based or carbon-based TIMs. The former is more expensive, but it offers the best cooling performance. The latter, on the other hand, is affordable and easy to apply, but it doesn’t offer the same level of cooling performance as a liquid metal TIM.
