How to Apply Thermal Paste

5 - 20 minutes

Easy

My Problem

The MacBook was running very hot, rebooting, blocking...

My Fix

I renewed the thermal compound on the CPU and GPU, it worked well but this is not a solution on long term, the processors are still running hot, the cooling is much better.

My Advice

If you now a MacBook Pro 2011 that's running hot, join the Facebook group "2011 MacBook Pro and Discrete Graphics Card Issue" and make a legal complained to Apple, sign the petitions please, all together we are strong!
