My gpu (8600m GT) is 88C idle and quickly reaches 110C under load so after trying everything under the sun (downclocking, coolers, fans, Lemmings guide on how to improve airflow (which actually raised the temp by a couple of degrees...) etc..) my one remaining option is to open the thing up to see if there's something wrong with the cooling system and replace the thermal paste. I'm a bit worried, though.. I'm reasonably technical and handy but I have never opened a laptop before and wonder if anyone knows of a guide of some sort regarding how its done, preferably with pictures, to be found on the net? Even if it's not a G2 I guess any guide will provide some help, so please, if anyone knows of some thread, article or wharever that might help, give me a link!
