    • Use thermal paste of your liking and apply a thin layer (I almost used too much).

    • The thermal pad (red circle) should not be replaced with thermal paste. If it seems dried out you have to use one of the same size.

    • If your fan seems to be clogged with dust you should clean it while it's removed.
