    Hey guys,

    Just bought my first Mac, and could not be happier it was a MBP. I have been a long time reader, but this is my first post.

    After many readings, I came across a thread saying a refurbish goes through a thorough check than a new MBP. I went ahead and happy to report everything checked out.

    The only fault; the temperatures. Right now on 99% idle it is 40C, 52% load it is at 68C. Keep in mind, I live in Vancouver and right now its kinda cold.

    So being my first post, I will keep this light. I will replace the thermal paste with Artic Cooling MX-2 instead of the popular AS5. I have read many forums that MX-2 is better and there is no curing like the AS5. I will post again with my findings and temps.

    Otherwise, I love my MBP.

    wait....

    WHAT!?!?!?

    are you saying you are going to dismantle your MBP, and swap the thermal paste? You will see a 1 - 2C difference, if any at all...

    Yeah, well its low temps because it was cold in my house. However, it does reach pretty high temps. Either way, I think it should drop more than 1-2C.
