    has anyone taken off the heatsink on their MacBook and reset it with Artice silver 5 or a better thermal paste?
    also, is there a break in period for the thermal paste Apple put in the MacBook?:confused:

    Most folks probably have not because they don't want to void their warranty.

    Concerning the break-in period for thermal paste; I've always heard it takes several hours of use to fully settle in and become most effective at transferring heat between your CPU and heatsink. If you've had and used your MacBook for more than a couple of weeks I'd say the thermal paste on it is as "broken-in" as it is going to get.
