Replacing thermal grease and cleaning the MacBook Pro cooling system

A couple of years after buying a MacBook Pro laptop, users face the same problems: the laptop is not working so fast, it freezes, its case heats up, and the fan sound becomes louder. The causes of these troubles are dust accumulation in the cooling system and the need to replace thermal paste, which protects the computer processor from overheating. The fact is that over time, thermal grease loses its properties, which makes the processor overheating. In this case, is required to replace it with a thermal paste.

How MacBook Pro signals that it's time to replace thermal grease

Symptoms of drying thermal paste and clogging of the laptop cooling system, which are important to pay attention to:

the cooler is too loud, its speed is increased; the computer is slow, slows down;

the case in the area of the processor heats up; the device turns off spontaneously.

If your MacBook Pro starts to work too slowly, this means that the processor has warmed up to its maximum permissible temperature (105 ° C) and, in order not to overheat further, has reduced the frequency. This happens in cases where the thermal grease on the processor has dried up and no longer performs its main function - overheating protection.

In this case, the processor and the heatsink are in contact. Over time, the thermal paste dries, losing its properties, and the crystal begins to overheat.

Important! It is necessary to change the thermal paste layer every two years because constant overheating of the processor accelerates its wear. At the first symptoms of thermal paste drying, contact a service center.

You work in a clean office or travel with your laptop, put it on a sterile table or take it with you to the construction site - sooner or later, the laptop's cooling system will become clogged and you will need to clean it. Symptoms of a clogged cooling system:

the computer case is heating up;

the cooler is too loud; a crack is heard; the computer shuts down spontaneously.

If you notice such symptoms with your MacBook Pro, then do not delay the visit to the service center, because it is dangerous for the “health” of the computer. A dust-clogged cooling system does not do its job. This means that the radio components of the computer located on the motherboard overheat, and their resource is reduced. First of all, capacitors suffer, and the board itself quickly gets old. Chronic overheating of a laptop due to clogging of the cooling system is dangerous because of damage to the motherboard, video card, or loss of data stored on the hard disk.

The cooling system in the MacBook Pro is designed in the same way as in other laptops. It is based on the principle of air injection using two fans (coolers) and a radiator. The fan sucks in the air along with dust particles, which then accumulate inside the laptop, forming whole lumps. Over time, the system becomes clogged so that the fan can no longer blow out the radiator even with an increase in speed. For a quality cleaning of the MacBook Pro laptop cooling system, contact the  Macbook Repair Dubai Service Center.

Important! The MacBook cooling system should be cleaned at least once a year if your computer is in the office or at home. If you work on a laptop in more dusty places and take it with you on trips, you will have to clean your computer more often.

To replace the thermal grease on the laptop processor and clean the cooling system, you first need to get to them. To do this, you have to disassemble the entire bottom of the laptop. Experienced specialists in our service center will carry out this procedure, following the instructions, carefully and clearly, using special tools so as not to damage the chips and transistors. Such work must be trust only to specialists. Stages of prevention:

First, the wizard removes the bottom cover of the laptop, then removes the battery, fans, and motherboard, having previously released it from all connections.

After the motherboard comes the turn of the radiator, which is located above the processor chip. Now the radiator and processor can be cleaned from the old thermal paste. After cleaning, the surface of the processor is thoroughly degreased with alcohol.

Then you can start applying fresh thermal paste. The specialist applies it in a thin layer on the processor and that part of the heatsink that fits snugly against the crystal. After that, the master cleans all parts of the laptop from dust and collects it, in the reverse order.

Important! We do not recommend cleaning the laptop cooling system and replacing the thermal grease yourself at home. The process of disassembling and assembling a computer is quite complex and painstaking, and the thermal paste layer must be applied correctly, taking into account many factors. Better to entrust this work to professionals.
