W530 motherboard replacement advice

#1 Post by Scientist and Saint » Tue Jul 24, 2018 6:37 am

I've bought a replacement mobo for my W530, and I'm looking for any tips/tricks/gotchas/advice people here think I should know re installing it.

I've got some Artic silver. What about the various thermal pads dotted about - can I reuse those, or do I need to get new ones? If the latter, where?

Youtube has a number of videos - are any particularly recommended, (or to be ignored)?

Get the T530/W530 Manual from the HMM link above.
