    btw it's not bad idea to mix TIM with LM....wondering what will be the result.....?

    As both LM and Kryo companies suggest spread method...so I will give it a try to mix LM with TIM and will see how the mixture will perform....;)

    Yeah Cross or Pea method work way better than spread method...I tried spread method but it only raised the temp....no idea why Thermal Grizzly suggest spread method....

    I honestly believe they recommend spread for total coverage. Not for better thermal performance, but for liability reasons.

    ...What the actual hell? You're lucky nothing fried. How did the LM even spray everywhere like that? Never before have I ever seen remotely close to that kind of a mess with LM. The only thing I can think of is bad contact + shocking your laptop on its edge many times. The LM also doesn't cover the entire die, which means that if the thermal sensor is covered but not some other component you could fry it due to excess temps. You say this was a factory LM paste job? @GenTechPC

    I wondered how LM got everywhere too until I read where he said it was lint from a pack of paper towels he opened. :D

    That and you have to slide the heat pipes downward from the die to remove the heat sink. Once I realized it was taped off I moved a little quicker with the removal than one normally would and some of it slid off the heat sink like the t2000.

    I'm pretty sure at least some of that's LM. Look at the shapes. The fact that the die doesn't have 100% coverage is more evidence something went very, very wrong.

    It's normal.

    run battery calibration, it will tell you that you battery need calibration or not....

    If you haven't run the battery calibration at all out of the box...you should run it....
