    First of all, excuse my bad English please, I'm dutch (lol).

    YES! I've actually done it!

    I've spend the last.. 5-6 hours on applying the paste etc. -.-

    (Yes im excited haha, i was verry scared things would go wrong)

    Anyway, i've applied some onto my cpu and gpu. The cpu was a pain in the cause at first one of the screws of the heatsink 'broke' ( the screwdriver wouldn't hold grip, idk how to explain) so i tried to do it with a Plier... This didn't work cause i didn't have enough space to move anything, so it turned out that i disassebled my WHOLE laptop, every single piece, from lcd screen to ram memory, EVERYTHING, just to take my heatsink out. O_O
    I had to re-open my lappy like 2-3 times cause i just forgot to reasseble small things like clables onto the motherboard etc.
    Now, i still have 5-6 screws left, and i have no idea where they came from :D

    In total: A BIG PAIN IN THE .

    The results:

    Well, im running orthros for 30 minutes now and my cpu has a temperature of 61 degrees celcius. Now you might think, " dude thats still hot", think again, concidering i had a max temp of 92 degrees c BEFORE modifying anything! So afther undervolting, cleaning my heatsink and fans i get a total drop of 31 degrees celcius.

    EDIT:
    I've just stressed my cpu by playing prototype for a while at max settings. and anti aliasing x4. My max temp was 80 degrees celcius, now this is still hot, but if you know my previous max was 97 this is an amazing result for just replacing the thermal paste!

    Thank you guys for helping me out in my other thread! <3

    Those who know the Aspire 5920G will know it runs verry hot, especially when stressed. So i'm happy with the results. :)

    Now i'd like you guys' oppinion!

    Do you think i did a good job? Are the results normal? Will temperatures keep on dropping as i heat-cool-it a few times? (the so called 'curing' or what?)

    P.S.: is it normal that i smell some weird chemical stuff? O.O cause its a weird smell and not one i'm comfortable with.. O well I guess it'll go away...

    Paste used:
    Innovative Cooling Diamond.
    (preheated before applying: 5 minutes in 60-70 degrees water to make it less solid.)

    My specs (see my signature)

    EDIT:

    Idle temps, cooled with a fresh breeze from my open window ^^

    If you guys care, i'll post some pics of speedfan, some graphs of temps (before/afther) an some other stuff you would like.

    For now, Thx for reading.

    grtz~

    Nice mod by the way any change in temperature (lower) is a good result.
    Now you max temp under stress is 17 degrees C lower that alone is a good mod in it self. Well done on your mod, the smell is more likely the fumes coming off the paste and not your workmanship (wire's shorting out hell noooooooooooo!)
    Maybe by next week temps be lower... curing time etc etc.:)

    thanks, and i might even re-do the thermal paste, as now i perfectly know how my machine is built and how I should perfectly apply the paste. My idles are still pretty high, but lower then before. (57°c-60°c)
    I'm trying to find away to cool my gpu down even more :)

    Grtz

    Please post some pics of the thermal paste on how you did it. It would help out some NBR members.

    Problem is, I didn't have any decent camera at the time of applying (neither did i have the time). I'm opening up soon to check things and propably re-aplying onto gpu, as now i get temperatures up to 88 degrees. (sigh.)

    I'll make some pics with my mobile and post em if you like.

    Click on the link in my sig to get an idea ;) and if you can take a photo of the surrounding area while still connected (heatsink-cooling fan heat pipes) and upload I might be able to draft something up for you...
    Once you get a good camera..:D

    Hey mate, nice to see those results. I was more than happy when I did this long time ago. Just a little hint from me - there is no need to disassemble your whole lappy in order to remove the heatsink. All you have to do is - unscrew all the screws on the heatsink, than in the battery compartment unscrew the closest to the heatsink screw and all you have to do now is to lift the battery compartment a bit. There you go, now there is enough space to slide your heatsink :D Be careful though, make sure that you have lifted it a bit, because you can scratch the CPU :) I love how easy is to get under the hood of 5920 :D Also you can try to undervolt both your CPU and your GPU, there is huge improvement and it costs nothing :D

    I too applied thermal paste to the 6920G - it's not helping the CPU so much (typical 6920G throttling woes), but the GPU is incredibly cool-running since. Low 50s on Power Saver on battery, idles on AC in the high 50s/low 60s, and the most I've seen after gaming is around 78.
