Are the pink/purple blobs unter the motherboard thermal paste? If so, should I re-apply any when reassembling?

Martin Düren - Reply

The answer might come to late, as you most likely finished the repair in the last 5 years, but it might still be useful for others:

Yes, the purple blobs under the mainboard are thermal paste.

If the paste is still soft you could potentially reuse it but I would highly recommend to use some new thermal paste.
