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.

More shots of the heatpipes, and cleaned up PCB and components. Further details of the parts are in the image descriptions.


@MacLemon I like how the decoupling caps on the Chip look like randomly thrown on...

@vogelchr Yeah, on the GPU they look like chococaps sprinkles. :-)
