Title:

Cooling system of the MacBook Pro (early 2011)

Text:

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: [guide|4990|Holy thermal paste|page=2] ) I have a Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra, one of the best thermal interfaces available: http://www.coollaboratory.com/en/produkte/liquid-ultra/ 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?
