Answer to: Do I need a new logic board for a new heat sink?Hi! I have a very similar question - I am replacing my logic board as the macbook died, and I have noticed that the heatsink has turned black along the top (its still mostly copper, but 2-3cms of it has gone black (as has a bit of the surrounding casing) but there is no heat damage to the logic board. Is it ok to use this heatsink, or does this blackening mean its damaged in some way? I've got a photo of the heatsink still connected to the fan) here http://mc.tt/02OFIdcSDw Hope someone can help! Thank you! Karen Williams
