I've thought about removing that as well thinking that it might be something similar to a thermal pad since it's real easy to make a dent in it. The screws have springs on them so I would imagine that making up for 1mm should be easy. For my g556e, I used Arctic Alumina since I really stink at applying the goo evenly and it's easy to clean off. It's real quiet, takes about 10 minutes before the fan starts winding up while playing games, which is a big improvement. So if I remove that pad it should be even better since I would think that it would improve the heat transfer.. any thoughts on this?
