View Full Version : N71jq: Need's new thermal paste

02-13-2013, 01:58 AM
I've had this laptop for a few years now, but the CPU get's very hot these days, ranging between 70-100c and this is on IDLE!

Now i know for a fact it is due for new thermal paste, I am looking to apply it myself rather than get a store to do it for me, and i got a few high grade TIM's here that i rather use. But im not 100% on opening the laptop.

I'm curious to know that if i unscrew all the screws on the bottom, I need to obviously remove the smaller screws under the battery pack too I assume? From close exception I am wondering if the USB ports will be caught?

Also remember that lint tends to clog up the cpu HS so clean that out too.

if you don't know, you can search from youtobe or when you dismantle must be carefuling, if you really don't know, send back to ASUS service center.
