Guys, After I replaced the HDD with a SATA SSD in my about my mac on storage it doesn't say Flash Storage but Solid State Drive. Can I change that writing into Flash Storage. I will have problems reselling it, people may think it was defective and repaired. If anyone knows how to do that please let me know. Thanks
Do you think the 11w pad makes for such a big difference? These are my current temps, http://autoeducare.ro/foto/screen.png
I think it is better to use a good compound and using the same amount of it, like Apple did, to fit into the sheatsink and chip space. For me it worked better the way they did it, but I did not check the GPU temps before to be able to prove it, the fans were very very silent though.
Thank you tjk4.
I recently upgraded the CPU to my Late 2013 27" imac. When i took the heat sink off, thermal compound from the GPU chips was used between the heat sink and the chips. It was just a bit more of it to cover the gap you specified earlier. I got a thermal pad, the only one I could find in my country was the 6w/mK made by Arctic. It was a square pad, 50mmx50mm and 1.5mm thick. I just placed it over the entire chips and I cut just a little small square in one of the sides where no chip was present.
Problem is now my iMac kicks the fan at 1800rpm whenever I do a bit of intensive work., photoshop etc. It did not do that previously with my i5 processor nor my 21 late 2013 with IRIS gpu, using the CPU close to 100%.
