Upper case getting to warm!
The upper case of my Macboook Pro gets way too warm, so its difficult and annoying to type, because of the sweaty hands.
I replaced the thermal paste already, and its better but still too warm to type. When I replaced the I discovered that the Keyboard backlight was stuck/fried to the heat sink. I even had to rip it a little to get it of, and tore it. Its still working though. I now have a pretty warm case and the CPU temp is only at 70°C. And the fans work properly too.
My question is, is it possible to isolate the the parts with some heat resistant foil or something. Or to deinstall the backlight? I almost never use it anyways, but if its the part that makes everything else hot than I rather take it out.
Or is it just the heat sink thats not working properly anymore?
Or is there any other part that could be defect, like the DC Connector.
I also have a Optical Bay installed, could it be that too? I unplugged it before, but it still went warm though. Haven't taking it out though yet.
Is this a good question?
