Alright, so in my boredom waiting for the new Macbook Pros to come out, I decided to tear down my MBP, clean it out, and do a thermal paste job. My temps weren't all that bad before, I remember around 50-55ish idle, but I didn't really record it or the load temp. Being at college and away from my tools, I went to Radioshack and picked up the T6 torx, size 00 screwdriver, and some Arctic Silver 5. Got to the heatsink, cleaned the gross Apple job with Isopropyl Alcohol wipes(all I had), and then used a glove to apply a very, very thin layer of the stuff(I was once told to apply about a rice-grain sized amount to all three chips and spread it around, went with that, and made sure it was spread and covered. I then rubbed my AS5-coated glove finger on the heatpipe contact points to coat them with a tiny bit of the stuff before putting them together(I didn't put a separate helping on, I just smeared a little from what was on my glove). Put the MBP back together and have been using it for about a day now. Idle temps are now 65-70 celsius, and will hit 90 under load. What could I possibly have done wrong? I've done many desktop applications of AS5, so the job felt like a piece of cake...is there something I'm missing? Maybe certain screws that specifically need to be tightened or aligned better? I didn't like how I couldn't screw the heatsink onto the chips before reassembling the computer, but instead having it become attached as I started re-installing the components/logic board. Did I miss something here, or am I unlucky? Thanks.
