Battle of the Goop - Thermal Paste Comparison

Shin-Etsu G751 & X23-7762

Shin-Etsu G751 @ X23-7762

Shin-Etsu are probably one of the top 3 most known thermal compound brands on the market. Interestingly, both of these thermal compounds have been around for over 3 years, but I've never personally used either of them.

Unfortunately Shin-Etsu's site is very sparse on information regarding these two pastes, and finding any information as to the differences between them has proven almost impossible.

Both compounds come in a long plastic syringe with the name Shin-EtsuMicroSi printed down the side. The only distinguishing feature between them is the different colour caps - Blue for G751 and Red for X23-7762.

The consistency of both compounds is very similar and can only really be described as thick and lumpy. Spreading the compounds evenly over the heatspreaders surface proved quite difficult with the compound not wanting to thin out. Eventually I found the best method was to place a plastic bag over the tip of your finger, and spread it using the bag.

Other reported methods include using a cocktail stick to roll the compound out over the surface or heating the syringe up in boiling water to make the compound more spreadable.
