    I have applied AS5 to my 2yr old Penryn Macbook pro and it made a huge difference in how cool it idles. Just recently bought a 15in Unibody Macbook pro and wanted to know if anyone has torn theirs apart and re-applied the thermal paste and if the results are drastic enough.

    **** this is actually a really good idea...didnt occur to me. does anyone know if its actual paste though, or a thermal pad? i think the gpu probably has a pad.

    I got some MX-2 that would make this baby run much cooler

    Didn't really help with cooling, but I do feel better knowing I used the right amount of paste (compared to how much Apple used).
