1st gen MacBook re-application of thermal paste.
« on: Sat, 03 November 2007, 07:30:46 »
I posted this a while ago on another (now defunct) forum site.  Just throwing it up here for preservation (and for those that might find it interesting).

Before pics and measurements.  This was all performed in a climate-controlled room (A/C) at 75 F.

Idle after 15 minutes:
pic1, pic2, pic3, pic4, pic5

Idle after 30 minutes:
pic1, pic2, pic3, pic4, pic5

Max temp at full CPU utilization (both cores ala two instances of "yes > /dev/null"):
pic1

Stabalized temp at full CPU utilization once fans kick in and do their job:
pic1, pic2, pic3, pic4, pic5, pic6

Stabilized idle temp after 100% CPU test was completed:
pic1


AFTER photos/measurements.
