When installing:

  • Before you attach the fan assembly to the computer, apply thermal grease, at an amount of 0.2 grams, on the part marked (a) as in the following figure. Either too much or too less application of grease can cause a thermal problem due to imperfect contact with a component. In some modes, you need to peel the thin film off from the rubber (b)
