Hi, I am about to order an Asus G73JH and I am not sure what type of thermal compound to order with it, here are the specs.

i7, 720QM, 1.6-2.8 GHZ, 6MB
1TB, 7200 RPM
8GB DDR3, 1066MHZ
ATI Mobility Radeon HD5870, 1GB
17.3”, Ultra Bright, 1920x1080

the sellers are giving me couple of choices,

Stock OEM Cooling, FREE
Asus Thermal Compound, FREE
IC Diamond Thermal Compound, AN EXTRA $125,

and if I need something more than the standard stuff but not the ICD should I get a notebook cooling pad?

Thanxs

IC Diamond of course, it's only $125 for 50 cents worth of compound.

Mistype? If not, your getting ripped OFF BIG TIME. IC Diamond 7 is ~$10 for a 7g tube.

^ NO! if they charge $125 (assuming it's US dollars) then you are getting RIPPED OFF BIG TIME. RJR was being sarcastic. Get the ASUS thermal compound and possibly a cooling pad.
