Hi All, I have a question about a dented heatpipe. I've changed the whole heatsink in my Inspiron 7537 due to fan failure and after finishing I've noticed that it's dented in one place, just before the fins: Can this affect thermal performance? I've tested it for an hour or so while playing Dark Souls 3 and here are the results: I think before changing the temperatures were higher, but I didn't test it in a few years so I'm not sure. The 2 degree difference between CPU cores also doesn't look bad, but I'm still concerned. Would you replace the fan in the old heatsink with the new fan? It's not much work, but if this dent won't be a problem then I will just leave it as it is. When I touched the CPU, GPU and the part close to the fins after turning off the computer both were warmer, but I did not test it during load and the PC blows hot air from the vents so heat transfer is definately working. I'm not an expert in this subject and thus want to hear some opinions from people who know more.
