Half of photos are with mac that has only integrated graphics, half with one that has discrete GPU. This frustrates.

Because of fact that this is about heatsink, it's kinda important to point the difference out.

He could at least just add a note on the heatsink screw photo.

Are the denser fan blades in some of the pictures from a different model year? iirc my 2014 one had denser fan blades, but not that metallic inner fan part.

do one with the discrete gpu and integrated graphics please

For the discrete GPU, there are 4 screws surrounding a square copper plate, just unscrew those 4 and follow the steps above. It’s very similar to the integrated graphics board, but with 4 extra screws.
