Obligatory video:


Happy to say my idle temps have evened out, between 88-91F (~32C) and the highest temp I've seen lately has been 190F (~88C).

Pretty sure the AS5 has fully cured by now ;)

What were your temps before applying AS5?

I did this once on one of my laptops but the temp difference was only about 5c on idle.
