Temperatures are unequal and high under load
I have made a few modifications to my Macbook Pro such as 16GB RAM DDR3 1333Mhz and have installed a Silverstone TS08 ODD conversion tray so that I can install two drives instead of one. The TS08 tray is light and made out of plastic and it currently houses my Seagate 500GB 5400RPM HDD and the other drive my primary drive is a Corsair GT 240GB SSD. I have already re applied thermal paste on the heat sink.
The problem I have is that the right side of my Macbook that houses my drives remains cool even under load and the left side gets too hot under load.
This gives unequal distribution of temperatures inside my Macbook and would like to know how to solve it? Can I install better fans if there are any? Can a 15" Retina Macbook fan be installed? Are there any mods I can make? If I ask a cutting company to make ventilation holes in the bottom lower case, where should I make the holes? How large do they need to be? Can I somehow transfer some heat by applying thermal paste to a strip of copper or nickel on both sides which will then be attached to the heat sink and bottom case in order to dissipate heat? Are there better aftermarket solutions? Is there such thing as water cooling or vapor chamber tech or equipment for laptops / macbooks? Any mods you can suggest?
Is this a good question?
