Service stop – new cooling

Feels really good maintaining things instead of always buying new stuff. Also it’s good for the wallet…

I tried before one time to fix some over heating issues of my (soon to be) 7 year old laptop. But I didn’t really feel I got a satisfying result.

So the other day I did a quick search for best thermal paste and a few places mentioned the Arctic Silver 5. Their website also contained some helpful guides and instructions. I also decided to replace the cooling fan.

Now my computer actually seems to run around 10 degrees Celsius cooler in average than before. So I am a pretty happy camper now.

Sooner or later I guess I will have to replace my laptop with a newer one. But maybe this little maintenance postponed that need at least a little bit. And I also have to admit that it’s kind of a sport to keep the old thing going.
