Do I need a new logic board for a new heat sink?
Hi, really quick question that I can't seem to find the answer to:
Do I need a new logic board to install a new heat sink?
My Macbook (late 2008) has a partially blackened heat sink, and the guy in the Apple store said I need a new one AND a new logic board to go with it. I'm not adverse to a bit of DIY - is it possible to just buy a new heat sink and (using your guide) stick it in myself... rather than shell out for a whole new logic board?
Thanks and sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere!
Thanks for your help again - I'll disassemble it tonight and post a photo.
I've used the temperate/fan apps and they tell me that the fans are always way too high - 4000 when resting and 6000 at least most of the time. The processor is the bit that seems to get the hottest, 110+ like I said...
Is this a good question?
