Information

Thermal grease and thermal paste are the same thing. So is thermal compound, thermal goop, thermal gunk,

heat paste, that gooey stuff you put between your CPU and heat sink, hot ass gloop-a-doop for your CPU-pa-doop. The terms are used interchangeably, but the brands and types vary in composition and effectiveness. You'll find grease/paste with varying types of carbon, metal, and ceramic, but multiple terms describe all 

sorts of variations. So don't worry about 'grease' or 'paste.'

 

How about thermal pads? Thermal pads are also different. They're a lot easier to install, but aren't as effective

as a beautifully thin layer of thermal paste (or grease, etc.). Some stock CPU coolers come with pads, because

they're nice and clean, and they'll work fine. If you're installing your own CPU cooler, however, I'd always 

recommend thermal goop (or paste, etc.).

 

Thermal adhesive is also different. Your pastes and greases are technically adhesives, but not like thermal

adhesive (or 'epoxy'). If something is labeled thermal adhesive, don't use it on your CPU! Your CPU cooler 

is clamped down, so you don't need a strong adhesive. Whatever you stick together with thermal adhesive is 

going to stay stuck together, so only use it if you're sure you know what you're doing-probably working on

a custom GPU cooling solution

 

Most of the time, you just need some thermal goop (or grease, etc.). Whatever it's called, it's just a variation

on the same thing: a 'thermal interface compound.'
