ok so i had success last year in fixing RROD on XBOX 360's and as i was doing some cleaning in my room i realized i had some arctic silver 5 lying around. i decided to take apart my unibody MacBook (and i'm posting it in this forum because i don't consider this just a MacBook as it has similar specs to the new 13" MBP) and reapply the thermal paste. i just finished putting it together about 40minutes ago and wow, the laptop is running a lot cooler. now hopefully this keeps up and i haven't jinxed anything, but i'm impressed thus far. i also decided to snap a picture of how the thermal paste looked when i took off the heat sink. iunno, i can't really blame Apple for this crappy job because i have abused the hell out of this computer (in terms of using it everyday for hours and hours, as well as taking it absolutely everywhere). but whatever, that's irrelevant now because i reapplied it with different type of paste and it seems to be working much better. i also find that my computer's running a bit faster, or maybe i'm just too happy right now in conclusion, this little project took me an hour and half. i set up everything on my desk and had my brothers MacBook (black old school) open with the iFixit guide. i was extremely careful with every part because i didn't want to break anything. putting it back together wasn't as bad as i thought. i did forget which screws went where but i ended up figuring that out after some time. and i know i'm not the only one that's done this, but i decided to make this post anyways just to show my results.
