pakthedude replied to timohour's topic in Dell Latitude, Vostro, and PrecisionI've bought a used E6430 i5 laptop. 8GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 1600 x 900 with NVS on eBay at USD $220. http://www.ebay.com/itm/201650834525 I took apart the heatsink and noticed the thermal gap pad for the northbridge is missing. The Vram of nVidia GPU had the pads on. This is the image I found on Google. The end of the heat pipe is where the northbridge goes. May I know thickness should I get? I could order from this online store below. The site has listing with "self-adhesive". I don't know which one to get. http://sg.rs-online.com/web/c/hvac-fans-thermal-management/electronics-heating-cooling/thermal-gap-pads/?sra=p Any recommendations?
