Tonight I ripped apart my laptop. This is a procedure I have done many times…not without pains.
I was hesitant to take apart this unit at first, but the processor temperatures were becoming a problem. I wanted to lower my temps. So I took the dive and took apart my HP g6 in order to put better thermal compound on the CPU.
Two hours later, I got to the center of the computer. Here are some awesome pictures for you guys. You will likely not find a picture of a laptop APU like this on the internet.
After replacing the thermal compound that came with the laptop, I saw a 5-7C drop in temps at load. Even greater drop at idle.
