Hello, I've had my G512 for a couple of years now. I was getting horrid temps and decided to open it and clean it. Unsurprisingly, it was filled with lint. I cleaned it up but decided to re-apply the thermal paste so I wouldn't have to open it up again for a while. When I did, I saw three things: a blue sticky substance on a lot of the outer components of the heatsink, a normal thermal paste that I know, and what I think is liquid metal.
I have a couple of questions:
Where can I find this blue substance to re-apply it, and would it be fine to use thermal paste instead?
Where can I find the liquid metal? Does it have to be a certain kind? Can I use thermal paste instead? If I do use thermal paste? Will it affect my performance?
Allso even after cleaning, my fans still looked really bad should I replace therm? if so where can I find original parts?
Maybe this video will help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCSLCuUkgCs . He is appling on G15 but quantities in your's should be about the same.
