fans running at full speed after reapplying thermal paste
Hi guys, I recently resurrected a lightly liquid damaged mac from the dead.
It was running perfectly afterwards apart from some random graphics glitches.
I decided to reapply thermal paste in case it was GPU heat related and ever since I have a problem with the fan running at full speed and slow general system speed.
I know on the older non unibody macs there was a thermal sensor on the heatsink and I once forgot to reconnect to the logic board which gave the same results. I cannot however see any sign of such a sensor on this unibody.
I have tried resetting SMC and PRAM several times with no success.
The macbook is charging perfectly and everything else is working fine.
I would appreciate any help you can offer and promise to post back with any results.
Does anyone know the location of the cpu thermal sensor on this mac?
Is this a good question?
