    Who wants to see the thermal paste?? No one cares? That is cool too, but in case you are bored, here shows that they are still blopping it on there :p

    Is that your MacBook? If you are applying a new thermal paste it'd be interesting to know how much the temps improved.

    God what a mess!

    I'm sure they've researched it enough to know that there's no harm based on it "bleeding" off the edge of that CPU/GPU die, but its so ugly for a tech to see :p

    Yeah it is mine. This is the 5th time I have done it, and I just did it without benchmarks. I used to see 8-12c difference or so. Now I just go ahead and do it.

    This time I went with Gelid Solutions GC-Extreme. Last time I went with Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra. I think I like the liquid ultra better and while totally not scientific, I believe it ran a tiny bit cooler with the liquid.

    Dear god that's horrible.

    Still. My late 2014 15" rMBP (2.5/16/512/750M) is perfectly fine. My older MacBook Air from 2011 (13.3"/1.7/4/128/HD3000) didn't have the blob although there were people reporting they had thermal paste blobs on their CPU/GPU combo. It varies per machine.

    How happy were you with the Gelid GC-Extreme? I'm getting ready to use that on a 2012 MBP. How long does it usually take to set? Is there anything special I need to do to help the new paste set? Thanks!
