I have a similar thread in the MacBook forum, that is not to be confused with this thread. It is referring to a completely different computer that I own. SUCCESS! After meticulously disassembling my MBP, I have successfully applied Arctic Silver Ceramique to the CPU and GPU. I took pictures of the original application of paste, but I mistakenly forgot to take pictures of my paste application. I am noticing a difference of approximately 10º-12ºC, idling. The difference between the original paste application and my new paste application is about 2º-5ºC, under load. I know that is not much, but the fan speeds are about 3000rpm lower than before the paste application, under load. The fan speed while idling is the same 1990-2000rpm as before the new application of paste. The whole reapplication process took about an hour (including taking apart the MBP). Now on to the pictures: This is a picture of the MBP's Logic Board with the original thermal paste application. This is a picture of the MBP's heatsink/heatpipe with the original thermal paste application. This is a picture of some of the scraps of the original thermal paste that I took off with a lint-free cloth and rubbing alcohol. It came off of the cloth. This is a picture of the heatsink/heatpipe with all of the thermal paste removed. This is a picture of the logic board without any thermal paste. This is a picture of the logic board with the heatsink/heatpipe attached.
