Cooling system of the MacBook Pro (early 2011)
My friend has bought a new Macbook Pro, in England.
He has started to have a problems with overheating.
Both I and him live in Russia, where no Apple stores are situated,
and we are not going to visit Europe anytime soon (before the 1-year warranty expires)
So, I am going to fix it myself, because I am quite skilled at this field.
I am going to replace the standard Apple thermal grease.
(check the Step 10: Holy thermal paste )
I have a Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra, one of the best thermal interfaces available:
The only problem is that it is prohibited to use it if the part of the cooling system
which comes in a direct contact with thermal interface and CPU/GPU
is made of aluminum.
So, please, tell me, what the part of the cooling system,
which comes in a direct contact with thermal interface and CPU/GPU,
is made of?
Assuming that you know more about this new MacBook Pro than Apple is pretty arrogant. You're going to void your friends warranty because you saw one MBP that overheats, therefor all the MBPs overheat. Your deductive reasoning is in error: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deductive_r...
You might be slower to condemn if the MacBook was yours. It will cost you nothing to return it for warranty work and then you can see if the problem persists. http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57
You can go to the Apple web site in Moscow www.apple.com/r
or pick up the phone 495 5809557
You don't have to go to an Apple store to get warranty work done. I've had lots of warranty work done, all by mail, without ever going to a store. None of the warranty work took more than four days.
Download SMCFanControl and keep your MacBook Pro cool that way... me and my son do exactly that. If it begins to overheat we just turn on the FanControl and wala... it's cool again. For some reason the fan stays on default when the laptop works harder. I would think the fan would bump up automatically but it doesn't... so a free download of SMCFanControl did the job. No warranty issue, no visit to the MacStore just a search in YouTube.
Good luck and be blessed.
