Product code: IF179-010-1

Product Overview

The most important step to keeping your CPU cool.

  • Thermal paste forms a continuous, conductive layer between a processor and its head sink, improving cooling performance and keeping your important chips from overheating.
  • Whenever you remove a heat sink, it's very important to remove the old thermal paste and apply a new layer.
  • To thoroughly clean and prepare thermal surfaces before applying a new layer of Arctic Silver, use Arctic Silver ArctiClean
  • Arctic Silver 5 is made of 99.9% pure silver and is not electrically conductive. See arcticsilver.com for more specs.

Compatibility

  • All machines requiring thermal paste.

My Problem

Exchanged the motherboard of a Macbook Air - late 2010. The Apple repair shop in Norway said the motherboard had to be replaced and asked for approximately 1000 USD to do it :-(

My Fix

The exchange seemed to work out nicely with a motherboard bought on eBay. But the Macbook Air is still dead. Have given up now after a loss of 200-300 USD. Following the procedure provided by iFixit was fun however - excellent instruction material.

My Advice

Purchase a new Macbook Air up front and do not attempt to repair it yourself. Do not purchase electronics spare parts on eBay. :-( I have now a brand new Macbook air and have attached the old SSHD enclosed in an OWC Envoy (OWCMAU3BENVOY) unit via an USB cable.

My Problem

Macbook Late 2008 Aluminium was a bit too old and when I tried to run XBMC kodi and Eclipse Luna. The temperature gauge pro always pop that my CPU temperature is getting hotter. I decide to replace the heatsink and the thermal paste as well.

My Fix

It did not go smooth even I had the iFixit pro tech tool kit. I think when I did the first attempt which is removing the logic board I was too excited to use the tool kit so I was really in a hurry. It happen the thing that I don't like to happen which stripping the screw :( it was a bit of a struggle but after using different type of approach of getting stripped screw out I solve it using a rotary tool kit with the help of screw extractor from Ifixit took me for about a month to solve it.

My Advice

The first advice I want to give is to be patient on small screws.

Think everything is easy and entertaining and don't give up when you see struggle. I would like you to think it this way first attempt is not always good but the more you do it the more it you get the hang of it.

My Problem

The yellow light of death on the ps3 wouldnt let me use my sp3

My Fix

Easy as cake, and MJ's instructions where exelent! ... nto to mention how easy she is on the eyes.

My Advice

Makesure you use the right driver for the screw, it was easy to strip the bolt holding the HDD casing, but it all went without a hitch after that

My Problem

Recently, I augmented the RAM and put a new SSD hard drive into my old late 2006 core 2 duo white mac book.

I heard a guy at a computer store say that the best thing you could do was to clean out your computer, but I didn't believe him. Anyhow, I realised my computer was definitely overheating when it started shutting down from using Netflix and bugging when watching video on the web.

So I did a bit of research, and decided to try cleaning the whole thing out and see if it made a difference (it did).

My Fix

The repair went very well, thanks to Ifixit guides and various Youtube videos.My macbook was really very dusty inside (even had alot of dog hair!) And it felt just like when you clean your kitchn our your car after you let the dirt accumulate for a while. Definitely ssomething I recommend. Also it was alot of fun to get to know and see everypart of my computer like that. It works much better now, I recommend this operation to anyone who has an aging computer, makes a world of difference (it works like new now!) It does not over heat anymore, which makes the fan less noisy, so it works faster, smoother and is very silent.

My Advice

You'll need to be informed to do this, you don't want to mess anything up. It took me a lot of time before I felt confident to do this, especially because I depend on my comouter for work and studies. I did not want to have to buy a new macbook in a hurry! Also, do not hesitate to spend a little more money to get better quality stuff. For example, I first got the cheapest screwdrivers I could find. But they rapidly stripped the gentle screws in my macbook, and made taking it apart a drag. So I bought a better quality set, and had no more problems. I also strongly suggest to clean the heatsink and the fan completely, especially if your computer is as old as mine. I am pretty sure replacing the cooling paste and cleaning out the heatsink and fan was what made a major difference.

So basically, to those of you who are wondering wether you should buy a new macbook or try to fix your old one: fix youre old one! If it has a good cpu, it is good to go! That is pretty much what it boils down to. The core 2 duo intel cpu is very decent, and will allow you to do all Internet-word processing tasks you need to do. If you are going to take it apart, might as well also install SSD hard drive and RAM, which will also greatly increase performance.

Also, install an app such as Istat which will allow you to monitor your CPU temperature and regulate fan speed (this is super important). That will keep you informed on what is going on. Check the specs of your cpu on intel or amd website, and make sure it stays well below it's maximum official heat limit (intel core 2 duo can reach 100 degrees, and I realised it went up to 90 really fast when multi tasking). You can do this by augmenting fan speed and reducing multi tasking when you see it is working too hard.

This is a bit like your car. If you drive with the RPM at maximum all the time, it is going to overheat.

Good luck! (and trust Ifixit)

My Problem

My hard drive crashed. I bought a new one, but when I put it in the notebook it wasn't being recognised. However it was recognised when plugged into a USB port. I diagnosed the problem as being the hard disk cable.

My Fix

Followed the instructions exactly and was done in 15 minutes.

My Advice

Stay cool. This kind of minor surgery on your Macbook is really easy and can be done by nearly everyone with the iFixit guides.

My Problem

Replace logic board; replace HDD with SSD; move HDD to optical bay; upgrade RAM.

My Fix

All in all, everything went well. Considering that this was my first repair ever, it took me much longer (4-6 hours) than indicated (40-60 mins). Also, during the repair I had to watch a couple of video tutorials on YouTube, because sometimes the guides alone weren't sufficient.

My Advice

To anyone who's going to do this repair, make sure you also get a 5.5 mm Phillips screwdriver. During the repair I came across a step which required this particular screwdriver, but I didn't have one since it wasn't mentioned on the list of required tools of the logic board replacement guide.

Furthermore, there is a Phillips #1 Screwdriver listed as a required tool for this repair, but I didn't use it since I managed to carry out that particular step using a Phillips #00 Screwdriver instead.

Also, at the end of the logic board replacement guide it says: "To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order". This is slightly misleading, simply because in doing so you would omit a very important step, namely to apply new thermal paste first. Therefore, I would advise to either include or refer to the 'Applying Thermal Paste' guide at the end of the logic board replacement guide.

My Problem

A friend brought over his mid 2012 27" iMac with a cracked screen.

My Fix

Repair went very well with the help of the iFixit video and detailed instructional.

My Advice

If you take care, you can start cutting the double stick tape that holds the screen with a very thin retractable blade to start the process then use the round tape cutter tool from iFixit. The initial cut from the thin blade helped the iFixit rotary cutting tool tremendously.

My Problem

I had a family reunion, and a nephew was playing my PS4, got a little excited and pulled the PS4 off of my tv stand. I had the controller connected to the charge cable, won't do that ever again when they use it. My warranty ran out with sony literally a few days before this occurred. I ended up opening it up myself, I found that the motherboard was cracked.

My Fix

Well, the repair in general was a little crazy, I had to locate another motherboard of the same model. I found one on ebay that was decently priced, only thing wrong with it was that the HDMI port was broken, so I ordered a new port on the side as well. I didn't have soldering equipment so I brought it to a local pc repair shop, they soldered it for me for $5. Then using the guide on the Ifixit site, I took it apart, fixed it all together with the thermal paste and everything, and put it together, and it was good as new!

My Advice

Be very careful when getting the motherboard from ebay, you may see some which seem fine, but aren't. Normally when they are providing other components with it, somethings wrong. Look for one with a broken HDMI port, that's normally the most easiest to fix, but most people on ebay don't really know that for some reason. If they have to solder, it seems to be beyond them.

My Problem

Easy to do and very inexpensive way to get computer working

My Fix

Very well for a novice at this type of repair.

Great instructions. Could have used info on material to use in replacing the heat sensor to the HD. I used a silicon paste, but wasn't sure this was the right answer. Seems to work fine.

My Advice

For the HD heat sensor cable, I would recommend taking it off at the mother board. i damaged the connector at the HD end (one pin came loose in connector) and had to carefully replace it. Mother board cable connector is much more robust.

My Problem

Broken screen and loss of battery life through normal daily use.

My Fix

It went very well! The spareparts were of usual high quality, packaging very good and the guide was easy to use.

1,5 hours used including preparation of tools and cleaning up afterwards.

A few worries though - The cables for the screen were squished and the adhesive behind the battery had lost efficiency, but everything runs really well so far.

My Advice

Preparation is the key. If your screen is broken, be patient with removing the screen. It is a tight fit on the iphone 5.
