Right to Repair

This little coin sandwiched between thermal pads helps transfer the heat from the back of board to the aluminium bottom plate turning it into a heat spreader and improving the laptop’s cooling. I use it right where the CPU and GPU are (2 coins) on 15” models.


Also I got inspired by those old 5,2s models and decided to use electrical tape on both sides of both fans to try and improve air flow in the heatsinks

(in the picture the left fan has it, right one doesn’t - just to see the difference):


And I also have MacFansControl installed using CPU PECI sensor and set it up as 65ºmin/85ºmax (Centigrade as it's universal metric)
