    Hello,
    Has anybody tried to clean and secure MBPro Unibody with this :

    Mr McKenic® Contact Cleaner & Lubricant
    Here is the link to the producer:
    http://www.mr-mckenic.com/

    I have seen that this spray makes it secure to water damage, and cleans electronic devices.

    Can I use it with my MBPro? Can I clean and secure motherboard pcb and keyboard and ports with it ?

    I also plan to re-apply thermal paste with the IC Diamond 7 carat. Is it worth it ?
    Here is the review:

    Take care,

    P. G.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?


    I am convinced that the "thermal paste" stuff is SNAKE OIL - nothing more.

    Apple laptops have had gobs of thermal paste applied for years and years. It does not look pretty, but if were causing problems the assembly process would have been modified years ago.

    I am just asking if anyone have had ANY experiences with cleaning MBPro with Mr. McKenic and applying thermal paste IC Diamond 7 carat. Any of those experiences.

    It has not been changed because it does not DRAMATICALLY increase rate of defective machines, but it is still a problem. Apple's manufacturing process saves time I guess by simply throwing the paste on without spreading or thinning it, but by doing so, users end up with warmer than necessary machines. Anybody who has done the modification has gotten temperatures up to 10-15 degrees celsius cooler on all tasks.

    Depending on how old your computer is, putting thermal paste on will void warranty as far as I know/heard. Correct me if I'm wrong :(

    link? most thermal paste changes create only a 3C-5C advantage. I'd like to see evidence of claims of 10C-15C.
