Screwdriver needed when applying thermal paste to GPU & CPU?
I bought a 5-point screwdriver and thermal paste in order to apply thermal paste to my mid-2012 retina mbp.
However, when following the guide, I noticed that there is description missing when you wanna take off each 4 screws on CPU and GPU. And they are 6-point screws.
So, my question is, is there a SINGLE 6-point screwdriver that I can buy in order to continue my work? (I am a student so I don't want to spend 30+ dollars to purchase a tool kit, just prefer to get everything i need to apply thermal paste.)
Thank you very much for your advice. However I believe the official thermal paste post needs to be updated. Tool information is misguided.
First, this machine should still be under warranty which you are about to void. Second, replacing the thermal paste should not be needed for about four years. Third, All you need is a T5 driver: T5 Torx Screwdriver See the guide: MacBook Pro 15" Retina Display Mid 2012 Logic Board Replacement
You don't remove the processors, just the logic board.
