Einleitung

This guide will help you replace or remove heatsinks on your Surface Pro 2. The heatsinks are responsible for dissipating the heat generated by electronics inside your device. They work by conducting heat away from hot components and radiating that excess heat into ambient air. Replacing these may be useful in the event your device is overheating or if you need to access other components underneath the heatsinks. Note that the heatsinks are located behind the motherboard on your Surface Pro 2, requiring careful disassembly and handling. You will be removing the screen and bezels to access the motherboard.

You will need isopropyl alcohol, thermal paste, a heat gun and a few other handy items shown under the tools section. The isopropyl alcohol and thermal paste are specifically needed to ensure good thermal contact between your replacement heatsinks and the electronic components they cool. Reference this guide as an example for how to apply thermal paste: Wie trage ich Wärmeleitpaste am besten auf

Safety precautions should be taken to avoid sharp metal edges, and sensitive electronics should be handled with care.
