This is a complete top half strip down to fix (takes me less than 30 minutes)

this is the culprit, as you can see the shim can easily overheat & go concave lifting off the chip.

  • cut a thin piece of alloy to the same size as the existing shim, i used an old alloy door push plate(easy to cut) & is the ideal thickness

  • Thoroughly clean the chip with pure alcohol, then apply an even spread of good quality thermal paste(Arctic silver 5) will never let you down

  • The new alloy shim is under the existing thin shim. I've done more than 20 of these repairs & had 100% success rate I always do the same to the CPU (might as well your already in there).,
