    Arctic Silver is fine... Just don't use a huge glob (or the whole tube lol)

    Stay away from AS.

    Arctic MX2 is better anyways.

    After a couple thousands reballs I would trust me :)

    I edited , the post and added the clarification.

    The advice was to reduce the risk for beginners.

    Mx4 is easy to spread.

    I hope this you will not end in which paste is better.

    And I hate arctic silver because customers try to change the thermal paste and put artic silver everywhere even though the device doesn't even start (power on ), and everything has to be cleaned first but thei watched youtube and if is on youtube must by true .....

    So if I am only going to use just one paste on everything should I use MX4 or MX2?

    Just use the mx2 , use small pea size on cpu,then on heat shield, then more on pipe, is better for one single paste.

    Give me more of that porn xd (Definitely I can't understand why people put so much thermal paste... it's just a thin film.. always a very thin film to "correct the irregular base of both surfaces.... it's not a marmalade piece of toast!

    Question for anyone doing modding in US:
    Do we ship the modchip and system or just our switch? I’ve been seeing conflicting things or maybe I’m just not reading right Lol also how long is the turnaround time?

    Btw what is the correct orientation of usb debug port - UP sign facing UP when facing shield and putting it together ? Could be mounted both ways.

    Ship just the tablet (so no joycons) and the modchip if you have it. Turnaround is a week, more or less. Really depends on the installer.

    Mine took a week

    Hi everyone. Been following this thread for a long time, just want to say thank you for all the information shared!
    I've seen some people using kapton tape covering the flex. Any alternative to kapton tape? I can't find it in any store (just online).
    Or is it not really that important? once again, thank you all :yayswitch:

    hello, I was thinking of changing the thermal paste on my pc, nintendo and from what I read they prefer the thermal paste mx2 and not the mx4, could I know why ?, in a store in my country they sell both and I am in doubt, I use the translator I hope you understand what I wrote and thanks for the previous help.

    "I used grizzly kryonaut on the die and heat pipe and K5-pro viscous thermal paste on the outer shield"
    Helidwarf

    So you want to spend big money and have the best safe cooling use @helidawarf sugestion, for pc just kryonaut.
    Is realy needed for a mobile aplication ?

    or mx4 1c ish lower on high stress overclook tests then mx 2 and easy to spread for everyone, on pc and tegra , and tegra shield , and mx2 on pipe becouse is stickier and stay in place better then mx4.
    Probably no diference in console aplication between mx 2 and mx4.



    or mx2 for all and save some money and still have good termal transfer, maybe you will have small trouble spreading the paste, small pea size on midle of cpu.

    And again please try to not put paste on mb.

    I just used the black electric insulation tape you can find in most convenience stores, you are trying to prevent shorts and anything isolating will do
