    Re: Do we need thermal paste for laptops?

    Thermal paste, or some oily thermal interface material, is necessary because it fills in the microscopic imperfections that otherwise trap air particles between the CPU and the heatsink, preventing the CPU from properly cooling.

    With continued use of the laptop, the thermal paste dries out constantly. Its thermal conductivity decreases, and air gaps can also reappear. Therefore, it is necessary to change the thermal paste to a new one once a year.

    That's what I do, the whole process, along with cleaning the motherboard, takes no more than an hour.

    Hi, I guess I can help you there because I have been a huge gaming fan for many years already and know practically everything about overheating and its consequences. First of all let`s clarify that when you are gaming on a PC, the CPU is the component that will require thermal paste. So, you should not forget that when applying thermal paste you should get a paper-thin layer of it over your CPU. For this, use just a dot of the paste on each side of your CPU. Then I should underline that there are a few different kinds of CPU thermal paste that you can use when building your perfect PC, so check out my favotire resource about it This will help you choose the best thermal paste for your needs. Hope my words will make sense for you
