I've searched the internet forums over and over the past few weeks and I can't find anyone who has re-applied thermal paste to a 13" 2011 macbook pro and posted results. The results on the 15"s are promising and I'd assume I'd get similar results on the 13 but I can't seem to find anyone who's posted 13" results online. I feel a bit lucky in knowing I have a slightly cooler 13" I5, It maxes out at 84º (6000 rpm fans) after 4 dev null's, and especially when I record using the facetime webcam with an external soundcard attached which is extremely annoying. Flash and regular browsing is stable, my idle is 42º (2000 rpm). My first one (which I returned) was routinely going to 90. Sill, would love to have the temps reduced further.
