    Hi, I did not touch the memory thermal pads, mine where in excellent shape. A Pic of them:

    The speaker cable is very fragile and fairly tight. I removed it with a jeweler's screwdriver. I put it against on side and twisted so that the blade catches the shoulder and raises it a little. Then I did the same thing on the opposite side. I probably went back and forth to each side doing this two or three times. Then I gently lifted it with tweezers and it came right out.

    The only part that confused me was whether there were prongs sticking up from the motherboard and the whole white thing was the plug or whether the socket was white and the smaller white part was the plug. After looking at it for a bit, I decided that the small part was the plug and the socket on the board was also white. That turned out to be correct. I'm glad I didn't pry up on the bottom of the socket. That would have made me a sad panda if I had broken it off the mobo.

    Nice, glad I helped someone out and gave you a little push to get it done.

    I've been Idling in the high 50's all day, and an hour of TF2, I didn't go over 70c. And I am OC'ed @ 725/1125. I am now gaming @ a lower temp then I was idling.

    Idle now:
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 0 [0] (C) = 56.500,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 1 [0] (C) = 59.500,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 2 [0] (C) = 56.500,
    MCLK(MHz)[0] = 1125.00, SCLK(MHz)[0] = 724.99

    Gaming now (~hour TF2):
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 0 [0] (C) = 65.000,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 1 [0] (C) = 70.000,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 2 [0] (C) = 66.000,
    MCLK(MHz)[0] = 1125.00, SCLK(MHz)[0] = 724.99

    Pre Paste Idle:
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 0 [0] (C) = 73.500,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 1 [0] (C) = 81.500,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 2 [0] (C) = 75.500,
    MCLK(MHz)[0] = 1000.00, SCLK(MHz)[0] = 699.99

    Pre Paste Gaming (only 5 min on tf2):
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 0 [0] (C) = 77.000,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 1 [0] (C) = 85.000,
    ASIC Temperature via internal TSS 2 [0] (C) = 80.000,
    MCLK(MHz)[0] = 1000.00, SCLK(MHz)[0] = 699.99

    (I would have more samplings but I literally reformatted a day prior to opening my laptop up and i didn't save my previous log files. )

    Here are some more.

    I had a picture of a test I was going to complain with to asus, a couple weeks before I repasted:

    [​IMG]

    I was idling ~80c that NIGHT, and once I ran Furmak it would spike to over 100 and keep climbing until it shutdown

    New Tests:

    FURMARKING:

    right now I am back to idling @59c. Pretty sure this also helped lower my CPU temps, although I didn't really pay much attention to them.

    Yep. I have it on my GPU only. Good results. No Break-in period. Furmark 1 hr max Ts at 87^C. COD MW2 games in low 70's

    thanks man. I am just a little scared opening this laptop. I opened up my old inspiron 9300 and replaced the gpu...tried new thermal paste whatever...but the gpu died...so I replaced it with cheaper ati one. I just am a bit worried about that speaker cable and perhaps messing up by not properly fiting it back together. My idle is at 67C currently but maxes to like 97 or 98 after an hr or 2 hrs of gaming GTA4 or almost any other game. With AA it goes to almost 103.

    I'm pretty much torn between repasting and just letting it be and this quote doesn't help much. At around 28C, I idle around 59-60C on stock paste and on stock clocks.

    Drop it down to Quiet Office 200/500 and I idle at 45-46C. Even less when I'm in an air conditioned room.

    So I'll guess I let the months pass, let the stock paste degrade a little before I do a repaste. :)

    Although I have to give a massive thanks, applause and song and dance for the abundance of info in regard to re-pasting experiences and guides. Props to the NBR community. :D
