  • 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?



    3 should i worry about this stoot on the cdrom


    last i touched somthing in the laptop and it made my finger feel odd, is there any chemicals i should worry about in the laptop?

    or is it my paranoia

    thanks for the help,

    Odd that the temps shot up like that, are you certain you were not blocking the vents? Looks like way too much TIM on there. Give it a good clean and leave pads on or swap for new ones.
    My local hospital has a sign which reads "This way for accidents and emergencies." Haven't people in hospital got enough to worry about without looking for further misfortune?

      thanks yes it is odd but with this dell inspiron you have to take the thing to bits just to get to the hd, so i could have nudged something.

      with cleaning is it ok to use arcticlean on all of the top of the cpu or just the black block?

      also am i right in saying i only have to apply compound to the black blocks on the cpu?

        Looks like normal for laptop paste. Leave the pads on as they are needed for the chips they rest on. It might have shifted a little so it isn't pressing on the cpu like it was(?). They can be tricky at the best of times.

          Yes cleaning is fine and yes, just on the metal.

                see what GPU temps you're getting

                I would cleat all the old tim from the GPU an CPU with articlean and cotton buds and from the back of the heatsink and reapply
                (leaving the green pads on)

                    The fans and stuff are all turning on ok? The fan should be going full blast if it is over heating and you would notice that on most laptops.

                        Which laptop? Reset CMOS and unplug/plug in fan again. Reminds me of the ZG5s that cut off after 60 seconds if the fan's RPM sensor wire wasn't in properly.

                        EDIT: What's the second part of the heatsink connected to? Put TIM on it if you haven't already done so.

                            Arctic Silver by any chance?

                            If the temperatures are an issue, you can apply a pin mod to lower the voltage by 0.1v which will drastically reduce temperatures. Although you're already having issues with it staying on so you may have even more stability issues. Focus on getting this sorted first.

                              right taken it apart and this is what i have done.

                              what the laptop heat sink looks like,


                              graphics chip pic (too much compound?)



                              cpu


                              and the heatsink



                              can you see anything wrong? or is it ok too build?
