    That night I disassemble my notebook for the adhesive heat exchange by thermal compound.
    Here the photos.

    Yes. Minus 4~5 ºC.

    I used generic thermal compound. The guy used Arctic Silver 5.
    And I live in a tropical country. Environment temperature is 30~40 ºC.

    Great pics!

    Here's the official HP service manual for the TX2500 which includes disassembly instructions with drawings:

    BTW, I used Arctic Ceramique. Shaved 10-12 deg C off the top end. Worked much better than the AS5. So I'm guessing that regular thermal paste would be pretty good too.

    I cant wait until my warrenty on my compaq 2710p runs out, then it will be mod city :p.I want to do something similar, adding a new layer of thermal compound. Also, i am probably going to paint it black/ make a carbon fiber casing for it.

    I must say though, good post.

    For this hot of a CPU, ceramique. It also has better thermal properties as detailed on Arctic's website. Works well on dedicated GPU's also. AS5 works best on Intel CPU's given that they run cooler.

    Nice photos!

    I did that with mine tx2510us too, but I removed the black paint from the heatsink, it really helps!

    Other thing I'm planning to do, is remove the thermal pad from the vga and placcing a cooper shin insteady, the hardest part by now is finding the little piece that fits in there! lol
