Hello,

The image below is the heatsink for my laptop and it has worked hard for the past 2 years. Now I want to make some improvement so it can dispense heat more effectively.

However, I have no idea about the part that I circled in the image. The grey-ish material looks the "Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound", but I'm not sure about that and it is about 2mm thick. The blue one seems like the product below on amazon, but again I'm not 100% certain.

Any suggestion whether I should replace them or leave it be?
