Is A Blackened Heatsink Still OK To Use?
I am replacing my logic board as my macbook died, and I have noticed that the heatsink has turned black along the top (its still mostly copper, but 2-3cms of it has gone black (as has a bit of the surrounding casing) but there is no heat damage to the logic board. Is it ok to use this heatsink with my new logic board, or does this blackening mean its damaged in some way? I've got a photo of the heatsink (still connected to the fan) here http://mc.tt/02OFIdcSDw
Hope someone can help! Thank you!
Is this a good question?
