I dont have thermal grease, what is a good alternative?

Years ago I used silver paint and it worked well.

  • Unless it's an emergency just wait until you have thermal paste. If it is an emergency:

    Thermal paste mostly works due to the zinc oxide. The best TEMPORARY fix is to use diaper rash cream from a grocery store.

    It's important to remember though that while both products are nearly identical, diaper rash cream has a lot of extra stuff including a higher water content so use just a tiny drop on the end of a toothpick and replace it with real thermal paste ASAP.
