imho making the A1708 to live longer just because it’s cute makes no sense.[br]

and repairing it make no economical sense anymore. so…

if you still need a working horsy - just remove the display assembly and output video on the external monitor. [br]

yes, i know how radical my solution may sound ))[br]

this way you will protect the display assembly for sure and on the way you will also discover that heat buildup at the top part of the top case is mostly due to the T-CON board itself and not from the backdraft from the heatsink, nor bad thermal design of other parts, nor intel’s fault etc. etc. [br]

added plus is that the ventilation of the main compartment will be much better without a display assembly than with it. if you know that you can reattach you perfectly good monitor in just 20 minutes top, why not?
