    Hi, I have An Alienware 15 R1 and it needs some maintenance. I want to take it to Dell next week so that they can clean the laptop and change the thermal paste on the gpu and the cpu.

    I know that the Thermal Paste that they are using is generic and from what I have heard it's not particularly good, so I was thinking of getting my own paste, so that they could use it.

    The problem is that I am in Mexico and there are less options here that in US.

    Here are the options that I have here:

    1. Thermaltake TG-6
    2. manhattan 140065 20g
    3. COOLER MASTER RPD GREASE HIGH PERFORMANCE HTK-002-U1
    4. Arctic Cooling Mx-4 20g
    5.Arctic Silver 5 Contenido De 3.5g

    I know that Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut seems to be the best thermal paste right now, but it is very difficult to get it here and I am not going to the US for a while.

    Are any of these better than the generic Dell Thermal paste or should I just not complicate it and let them use the one that they have?
