Finally I was able to take the time and do some *really* necessary maintenance to my MacBook Pro.
Thoroughly cleaned inside and replaced all the almost a decade old thermal compound.
No luck with the spare fan I had in mind, as that one had already been replaced. Need to order a new one.
Otherwise surgery concluded successfully.
@MacLemon This might sound like a dumb questions but what did you use to clean up the CPU / GPU so proper? Wondering about the liquid and cleaning utensil. Would be happy to get some alternatives for what I am usually using.
@MacLemon That sounds pretty straight forward and nothing too exotic. For me it was a kitchen papertowels to clean it up, so nothing fancy or even close to "this clean" you managed. Isopropyl alcohol is something I should get for that matter because I don't have any and the toothbrush is an very interesting choice to get it from those those places that aren't easy to get to. I will take your way into consideration next time. And yes, always stay grounded.
