Did somebody loose a tube of the ubiquitous white thermal grease?
Yup! That's the good stuff all right. For a cleaner alternative check out Sil-pads. You can get a sheet of the stuff and cut the holes with brass tube from a hobby shop.Transistor grease is used to maximize thermal transfer to a heat sink. It is a silicone grease mixed with titanium dioxide. It is very white and sticky. Some always gets on your tools and fingers, and then all over your clothes and work area.
The joke is that if someone spills a pound of the stuff, everybody on earth will be leaving white footprints in about three days.
