Well, recently I brought myself a new machine (new to me) to replace my old 2.2Ghz SR which has served me very well for the past two years. It's still in perfect working condition but I need a little more speed, so Adobe Premiere Pro & AfterFX CS4 would run smoothly.. especially when I'm on the road. Anyway, this system actually arrived yesterday afternoon but I've been so busy with my job i didn't have time to play. Till this morning.. hehe... Oh, it's soooo damn nice to have new toys. When I ordered this system, Apple's website stated it's a 2.5Ghz but the other label and system both says something different. Over all, it just adds to making this purchase a bigger "BARGAIN" !! I've already called about regarding this, they're gonna let me keep it without paying extra, cause Apple made the mistake!! Hear that kids? For those who ain't familiar with me, I like to tweak and customise my systems, so they're at the best as they can and suitable for me. Naturally I'm curious about some things, so it's fairly normal to rip something to shreds with little regards to the manufacturers warranty... Being technically minded, it's extremely rare to send a machine back, especially since this is a refurb.. After a quick test of it's hardware and complete check of the system I procedded to upgrade the system from it's default 200Gb 7200rpm drive to a more useable 320Gb 5400rpm. I know it's not the fastest drive out there but it's just the system drive guys. Later proceeded to check the thermal paste situation (and it's less than 24hours old). Under the bonnet I go, and OMG!!! Apple still ain't learnt anything! Just look at it, it's bleedin' degraceful! Why can't they get it right?? Now, I can't imagine how yours are looking, especially those of you with the newer Unibody systems... Dear Apple, Why must you put some much bleedin thermal paste on these poor defenceless chips? Surely using so much paste will only cause them to harbour more heat, then displace it? Well.. this system has been cleaned up, no thanks to you... Well.. I've replaced all that gunk with some Super Thermal Grease, it's super thin!! It fills in the dents, gaps and what have you, creating a perfect contact between the chip and your heat sink. I've chosen this product cause it's better under intensive heat, plus it doesn't need to be replaced every six to twelve months. Meet the family...Think I shouldn't buy anymore systems for now.. What you think?
