HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 (V2) Inside Pictures For People Who Want To Reapply Thermal Paste

Apr 25, 2010

I decide to reapply thermal paste and took couple of pictures to show how to do it and what kind of parts you need to remove.

First you need to download service manual and read it. All the instructions are there for how to dissemble the notebook. Following pictures might help you to understand service manual.

Things you need to unplug before remove the top panel

Things you need to unplug/unscrew before remove heatsinks

Here's the CPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned CPU heatsink

GPU picture without heatsink

Cleaned GPU heatsink

I use white cotton cloth and alcohol to clean the CPU/GPU and heatsink(s) and use AS5 as a thermal paste. CPU/GPU temp drop nearly 4C-5C. I need to wait until AS5 settle down.

I'm expecting another 2C drop after that.

Dell :: Has Anyone Replaced The Thermal Paste / Thermal Pad On A E6400/M2400?

Apr 2, 2009

I have come to grips with the fact that my E6400 (see specs below) has idle temps of around 42 for both CPUs and around 62 for the GPU (while docked).

While these are not dangerous, and while the slow fan speed is very quiet and therefore doesn't bother me, I refuse to accept defeat so easily.

So, I am thinking of replacing the thermal paste and possibly the thermal pad on my E6400. There is at least one person here at the Latitude/Precision sub-forum who did that, with amazing results

Acer :: 6920g Thermal Pad Or Thermal Paste For The Northbridge

Jul 16, 2009

i have a question for everyone who has removed the heatspreader from an acer 6920g. Did the northbridge made contact with the heatspreader by a thermal pad or by a thermal paste ? mine had something that looked like a thermal pad but when i tried to remove it , it tore into small pieces ( i know a thermal pad is not like that ). i used a thermal paste when i put everything back together. Should i open it up again and use a thermal pad for the northbridge ?. In everst in the sensor menu it shows 42 degrees celsius for the motherboard sensor ( i assume that is the northbridge).

Dell :: M1530 Gpu Thermal Paste?

Apr 22, 2009

I just had the motherboard/video card on my m1530 replaced by the dell guy because of the old defective graphics card issue. I watched him do the whole thing, and when he re-attached cooling mechanism to the motherboard, he used new thermal paste for the cpu, but not the video card.

I asked him about this, and he said that the surface of the gpu is different and doesn't need it. I don't really believe this, since it looks just like the desktop gpus that I always use thermal paste on. I'm getting pretty high temps now (65-70C idle).

Dell :: How To Apply Thermal Paste

Apr 5, 2008

Alright, my CPU is idling at 75c and my GPU is at 80c, I've opened up my M170 and It didnt seem dusty at all, so I went out and bought a small tube of AC5 which people say will help.

Now the problem Is I have no idea where to apply it, or how much is needed. I dont really know anything about hardware components, so If anyone has any pics which could show me where and how much to apply that would great.

The M170 is currently in peices at my desk and Im typing this on a MacBook, and I really dont want to spend anymore time on the OSX than I have to.

Dell :: Changing Thermal Paste - M1530

Apr 22, 2009

Well i finally decided that i should give this a try after seeing my temps creep up by about 1 degreeC per week. I just ordered some Arctic Silver 5. Ive looked at all the thermal paste topics here and still have a few questions. Firstly, what exactly is the thermal pad and do i have to worry about it? I saw that some people had to remove the pad but when i read through

http://www.robertbromfield.com/Tutor...he%20M1530.pdf tutorial i didnt see anything about taking off or replacing a thermal pad.
Secondly, when applying the thermal paste, do i want to cover the whole "black square" of the cpu/gpu with a thin layer?


And lastly, i heard that this may void your warranty. I was wondering, if i did break my lappy somehow, couldnt i just clean it off so that when the tech guy comes i just claim that i never even opened it up?

I already undervolted my computer which did help, but the fan is so weak now that I feel i need to do everything possible to keep it from overheating. Does anybody have an extensive guide on applying thermal paste?

I really need to do this. I am pretty noob at computer hardware, So i would need a guide that would even tell me how to take apart my entire case/etc... I am sorta running out of options.

Dell :: Anyone Replace The Thermal Paste On A Vostro 1500?

Mar 10, 2010

My temps are starting to creep up and I suspect the thermal paste is the culprit. I'm looking to replace it. If anyone has done it before. My question is, does the Vostro use a thermal pad or just a heatsink on on top of the CPU?

I checked the service manual and it made no mention of a thermal pad. Just looking to make sure before I tear it down.

Dell :: Warranty- Changing My Thermal Paste On My CPU And GPU Chipset

Dec 2, 2008

I was thinking of changing my thermal paste on my CPU and GPU chipset, many ppl out there saying this would void the warranty and hell yeah it will, but the question is, will DELL engineer would be able to differentiate between stock silicone paste and new thermal paste (for my case is Coolermaster Nanofusion), anyone ever get busted by modding XPS?

Unless you change the obvious purple/pink thermal pad at the ACPI chipset to copper sheet then it's a totally different story.

Dell :: Reapplied Thermal Paste - M1530 Hotter Than Ever

Jul 21, 2009

So ive been dabbling with the thermal paste on my m1530 for a few months now but havent really stressed the gpu to know for sure. Today however, while playing l4d, my gpu temp got up to 88 degrees C and my cpu was in the high 70s.

I havent seen these kinds of temps since i got my mobo/heatsink replaced a year ago. I have opened up my laptop and my fan looks a little dusty but i am not sure if that would warrant a 88 degree gpu temp.

I am wondering if this could be because i applied the paste incorrectly? I am quite sure i did it right and i followed the instructions that were posted on here for m1530s exactly.

Dell :: SXPS 1340 Thermal Paste Replacement Guide

Aug 26, 2009

Replacing Dell's default thermal paste in the Dell Studio XPS 1340 can lower your cpu, gpu and ambient temperatures by as much as 15C/60F.

When I first received my SXPS 1340 from Dell, my temperatures were:
THRM-57C, CPU-52C, GPU-62C.

For me, these temperatures were O.K., but I knew I could lower them by replacing the thermal paste.

My temperatures after replacing the thermal paste were:
THRM-48C, CPU-34C, GPU-50C. Note that after a month or two of having the MX-2 inside your computer, the cooler it will become as it settles

Dell :: Quiet And Cool. Thermal Paste Replaced! 38@idle 73@load

Mar 25, 2009

I replaced the thermal paste of the CPU and the GPU with "Coollaboratory liquid pro". And I replaced the thermal pad of the northbridge with "Arctic Silver 5" thermal paste.

Here are my sesults (in a 20 degrees Clesius enviroment, T9600, 2,8GHz, stock voltage):
73 dregrees Celsius at 100% load
(instead of 92)
39 dregrees Celsius at 0% load (fan off)
(instead of 45)

According to my research and different experiments this combination is my actual optimum.
The cooler and more silent system supports my usage of voice recognition (using the internal mic).
Of cause later the voltage could be reduced using rmclock.....

Dell :: Video Guide: Changing Thermal Paste(AS5) On Studio XPS 1645

Feb 23, 2010

Due to popular demand of people requesting a guide on how to change their thermal paste I decided to make a video guide for the community as a way of giving back. Enjoy and sorry if I'm no high quality youtube blogger. This is my first video ever.

Changing Studio XPS 1645 Thermal Paste(AS5) from XmDXtReMeK on Vimeo.

You need isopropyl alcohol(99% or high purity)/arctic clean solution would work too with Q-Tips to clean up the previous compound. So please have that handy guys.

Also watch this video on why I will not spread the compound but put a pea size dab of the compound and let the pressure spread it. You do not want air pockets between your cpu and heatsink, it will cause a lose of the thermal interface and wont work optimal.

Dell :: M1210display- Pictures/videos With Artifacts As Watercolor Pictures

Sep 12, 2009

I've got an XPS M1210 with NVidia GeForce 7400 and since last week all the pictures/videos appear blurry with artifacts, somehow like watercolor books or with burn efect pictures. Other observation: on the Windows locking blue screen, instead the clear light blue on upper left corner, I can see something like a sun with round circles around effect. Also, on the starting black Windows screen, the words are not shown clear. See the attachements as examples.

I tought is from a corupted driver, so I rebuild the system but, without luck. Even I opened the laptop and checked all the connectors plus clear the dust but, with the same bad luck. Also I replaced the LCD with a new one but again the problem is still there = I've got one new 12.1" LCD for sale now.

I connected another monitor and also a HD TV to the laptop and on these, the pictures and video are perfect.

HP/Compaq :: DV4T? (Specs Inside)

Jun 11, 2009

I was looking at the HP DV4T with specs:

-Moonlight white
-Vista 64bit
-P8600 2.4Ghz or I can up it to the P8700 2.53Ghz
-4 GB Ram
-320 GB Hard Drive 5400 RPM
-512MB Nvidia GeForce G 105M
-14.1" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen (1280 x 800) LED for better battery life.
-Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card with Bluetooth
-High Capacity 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

I was wondering what you all think about this set up, or if I should tweak anything with like the processor.

Also how does this laptop run in your experience. Hot or loud? What does it score on performance index with these specs if anyone has them? Are there any concerns I should know about or tips. Like does the optical drive pull out if not using to save weight or add another hard drive? Maybe even steer me to another direction if you would like.

Also I have never owned a laptop before, but my friends use an external monitor when home. What do you all think about getting one?

This laptop will be for everything, school, entertainment, causal games.

HP/Compaq :: Rubbery Thermal Pad In Dv6575ca Notebook

Jan 1, 2010

I just finished taking apart the dv6575ca to apply new thermal paste on the gpu and cpu.

When i had it apart, i found that there was also a spot on the heatpipe/sink for a 3rd part which i believe to be the north/south bridge? The GPU and CPU's themal paste needed replacing, so i replaced with arctic silver thermal paste.

However this 3rd part was only using a rubbery pad. I have never seen a rubbery thermal pad before but with a bit of googling i found it. I could not use thermal paste instead of the pad because the pad had quite a bit of width that was filling in a gap(if i used thermal paste it would not reach the heat sink). I was not thinking and got thermal paste all over the pad. I used rubbing alcohol to clean the rubbery pad as best as possible but i am worried that the pad will not work properly now? i have the laptop running and in hardware monitor, the GPU and CPU temps are great but i do not think i can see the temp for that 3rd part. Any thoughts on if that "rubbery thermal pad" will do its job still? or should i replace it asap?
