Hi everyone!

I'm having my G751JT Laptop Service tomorrow (they will be installing 4 x 8GB Kingston Hyper X Impact 2133 mhz ram). I asked them that since they will have to disassemble my laptop if I could also provide them with a thermal paste to replace my laptop's current thermal paste. I will be providing them the Arctic Silver 5 Kit (with the cleaning and etc) and they said it wouldn't incur any additional charges.

My question is - is it worth it to have my current thermal paste replaced? I usually replace the thermal paste of my laptops before with Arctic Silver 5 and never had issues. You might be asking why I'm having Asus do it - because my laptop is still under the 2 year warranty and their only charging me $30 for the whole thing which I think is worth it to keep my warranty intact.

Thanks and looking forward to your comments and suggestions! :)

I don't know mine runs at 40-45C Idle
If you have a better thermal paste then its worth it if not I don't know.

Would that break your warranty any way or not?

"worth it? " After 5 years of use - sure.
