    Hello all. I have noticed that my temps are slow getting hotter and hotter as time goes on (past 2 years).


    I know the heat sink is clean (as I cleaned it when I put my 500GB drive in).


    What are your thoughts? It is probably the cheap silicone based crap that dries out after a while...

    If you feel fine to do it, go ahead. Here is old thread about reapplying thermal paste with amazing results

    Also Apple didn't apply thermal paste correctly. I would suggest usig AS5 or Arctic Cooling MX-3. Remember less is more. You don't want to much.
