I've posted before regarding my laptop giving me the BSOD, but I managed to fix that by replacing the old HDD with an SSD and upgrading to windows 10, partnered with a brand new HDD. I also increased the ram from 6GB to 8GB. Now the laptop is between 40-50 degrees celsius idle and can go up to 80 degress when doing something as small as watching a youtube video. Bare in mind this was in a hot room, but that 80 degrees seems a bit much.
I plan on replacing the thermal paste since the laptop is coming to be 6years old, and has been used for gaming for the first 4 years of it's life.
If you want to know the processor its an Intel i7-3610QM and running a GeForce GT 650M.
I have Arctic MX4 thermal paste. How will be the optimal way to apply the paste?
