Follow this guide to get a better handle on your MacBook's cooling problem.

"For your safety, discharge your MacBook Pro's battery below 25%" before you begin. A charged lithium-ion battery, if accidentally damaged, can start a dangerous and uncontrollable fire.

After the repair, my MacBook Pro's (2.2GHz 6-core i7 & Radeon Pro 555X 4GB) performance under full load improved from a falling 3.1GHz-2.6GHz at 100°C to a continuous 3.2GHz at 95°C.

Use this guide or follow the abbreviated instructions below to disable Auto Boot. This command may not work on all Macs. Power on your Mac and launch Terminal. Copy and paste the following command (or type it exactly) into Terminal:

Thanks for the instruction on how to make this MBP run cooler

It would be useful to mention the thermal pad and thermal paste at the beginning.

Please provide specifications for the thermal pad and thermal paste, or suggestions for each.

0,5 mm thermalpad was to thin for me, I used it in two layers, 50x50mm was enough for that
