    Is there a walkthrough somewhere of how to re-apply thermal paste to the 560m in the 8130?

    it's really easy, just take the heatsink off, clean it off a paper towel, then with some isopropyl alcohol. Then just put a dot, then put the heatsink over it, done.

    Not true...
    I actually tested 95hz on this lcd, and it works fine. 100hz has some artifacts, 120 colors are warped.
    Much smoother though.

    In nvidia control panel.

    This is true for desktop CPU dies because they have heatspreaders and the heatsink usually has enough force to spread the thermal paste. For laptops with "bare" dies, you should spread the thermal paste as evenly (and thinly) as possible until it covers the whole die then install back the heatsink.

    Hope that helps.

    It really depends on the paste you're using. IC Diamond for example, still recommends the pea method rather than surface spread. You are screwing the heatsink down tight to the die, so it should be plenty of pressure to spread it out. They recommend not doing the spread with IC Diamond because that's a good way to get air mixed in, which will lower the effectiveness. (this is not the case for most TIM, but IC Diamond is extremely viscous)

    Never used IC Diamond but I believe you are correct on that. Currently, I use Prolimatech Pk-4 which is considered one of the best TIMs in the market as suggested by famous forums like OCN and the like.

    I would highly recommend against using paper towels, they'll leave behind lint and bits of paper which are terrible. Use a microfiber or lint free cloth if you have them. A coffee filter will work in a pinch as well because they're lint free. 90% isopropyl alcohol is also useful to help clean off the old TIM. Just dab some of it on and wipe off with the cloth.
