Title:

Cooling system of the MacBook Pro (early 2011)

Text:

My friend has bought a new Macbook Pro, in England.<br /> <br /> He has started to have a problems with overheating.<br /> <br /> Both I and him live in Russia, where no Apple stores are situated,<br /> <br /> and we are not going to visit Europe anytime soon (before the 1-year warranty expires)<br /> <br /> So, I am going to fix it myself, because I am quite skilled at this field.<br /> <br /> I am going to replace the standard Apple thermal grease.<br /> <br /> (check the Step 10: [guide|4990|Holy thermal paste|page=2] )<br /> <br /> I have a Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra, one of the best thermal interfaces available:<br /> <br /> http://www.coollaboratory.com/en/produkte/liquid-ultra/<br /> <br /> The only problem is that it is prohibited to use it if the part of the cooling system<br /> <br /> which comes in a direct contact with thermal interface and CPU/GPU<br /> <br /> is made of aluminum.<br /> <br /> So, please, tell me, what the part of the cooling system,<br /> <br /> which comes in a direct contact with thermal interface and CPU/GPU,<br /> <br /> is made of?
