Customer came to us with his machine getting very hot and cutting off. Reason being over time laptops pull in quite a lot of dust – and it gets trapped around the heatsinks and fan. Also the thermal paste laptop manufactures tend to use is very cheap – as a result its not too effective long term and dries out quickly. We clean out this old paste and reapply Arctic Cooling’s MX-4 which is high performance thermal compound suitable for overclocking which provides a much better conductive channel to the heatsink. Afterwards we stress tested the laptop to ensure the machine operates at reasonable temps.
You should consider to clean your Laptop or PC at least once a year. If you don’t, it may cause you problems like overheating, blue screens, slowing down and eventually dying.
When your laptop gets dirty and dusty inside, the dust that collects forms a “blanket” over the exhaust grills, stopping the fan from pulling in cold air and pushing out the hot air coming from the processor. This is the result – see pictures below for before / after shots. Dirty dusty overheating laptop.
