laptop cleaning cpu help
cleaning laptop cpu and others parts
hay guys just replaced my hd with a ssd and after i checked the temps i had seen it had shot up by 15c

so i have started a cleaning, but i am unsure on a few things


1 would i treat this like cleaning a desktop cpu or wold i have to be careful on the arctic remover

and when applying compound would i only add it to the two blocks?

2 would it be best to leave the green pads on?

You pretty much want to do what you would normally do for a desktop. The difference is that laptops are a real pain to work on and usually you have to tear the whole thing apart to get tio the CPU. Once you tear down the computer and get to the CPU. Take a non lint cloth (coffee filters work great) and rubbing alcohol and clean the CPU until there is no more junk showing on the cloth. Then apply a very small dot of thermal paste to the CPU and screw heatsink back on. You only need to apply thermal paste where there is thermal paste already pre-applied. Leave the green pads where they are.
