    Hey Meo, I have a doubt about this process. Pls. help me, my lenovo is overheating.

    These thermal pads were put in pressure/contact with the cover or you put some glue ?

    Major issue is fan efficienty on this laptop. If u check fan and radiator theres big hole where all pressure go off this hole and no trought radiator. I fix it to sealing this hole by special foamgum for high temperatures and my temps go down by 20 celsius. When I will be at home I will made more photos of my not MOD but Fixing constuction problem of cooling on y50-70. Most of laptops have fans and radiators sealed by tape and what i see Lenovo made big construction mistake in this.

    If you want more info message me, or ask there.

    Just the thermal pad is enough, no need for glue or something. the pressure between the back cover and the cpu cooler is enough to hold the thermal pad.

    not cooling pad, thermal pad.
    They are safe to use, as they are not electrically conductive.

    Odd to see that gap not covered with a plastic flap like in other brands. In your case what benefit did you get in going with a foam rather than a thermal tape to cover the gap? What was the total improvement in temp?

    One more thing: What exactly is 'special foamgum for high temperatures' ? Can u explain to more detailed or suggest another tool (like thermal tape) ?

    You can use thermal pad for filling that gap too. Just cut a piece of pad equal to that gap and fill it with it.
    Make sure that pad is thick enough to fill in the gap and not to fell on to the fan blades.
