T430 disassembling and CPU repaste guide

#1 Post by skx » Fri Aug 03, 2018 1:34 pm

Hi all

Someone know a good guide, video presentation on how to efficiently disassemble a T430 and repaste the CPU? I am used to work with computers, just not an expert with disassembling these fragile laptops where it's easy to brake something.

I have a T430 which runs way more hot than my other T430. I hope cleaning the fan and repasting the CPU will bring the temperature down by 5a7 degrees C.
