Ello alls. I have a bud who has a 17" MBP that's been enough for him so far, as he mainly does office work on the machine, however the hard drive space on his SSD has proven too small for the lifespan of the machine. Seeing as he has no knowledge of computer internals, I'll be doing a SSD swap for him, and I was wondering whether anyone could shed some light on how hard it would be to take one down. I'm 99% sure that the HDD bay is exposed under the bottom cover, though I don't know how easy it would be to remove it. Also, his lap's been toasted by watching some YouTube videos and through light gaming sessions, and after checking his temps, his GPU and CPU temps are scaring me as they're hitting the 90C range without the fans kicking in. I'm thinking that it could just be a result of the factory applying too much thermal paste like they have with other models, and am considering whether swapping TIM with something more efficient like AC MX-2 (which I personally use on my overclocked i7 PC), though the takedown manuals for some MBPs are starting to scare me lol. I haven't sourced a takedown manual for the specific model, so I'm not sure how much time it would take. Preferably, I don't want this to turn into a 2 day project, nor do I want to run the risk of accidentally breaking cables in a perfectly good machine, could anyone advise me on how difficult it usually is to strip down the mobo for TIM replacement?
