rate this thread
down. It seems thermal to me, but I can't figure out why. I removed the
heatsink/cooling assembly, cleaned it, applied new thermal paste, blew out
the fan and vents and reassembled. But it still gets terribly hot and shuts
down. After just 3-4 minutes the heatsink gets so hot that it would blister
my finger if I left it there. Obviously, the heat is not dissipating
properly, but there is no obvious reason for this. The fan spins well and
everything is clear.
What is going on here? Can heatsinks or the heatpipes go "bad?"
