Cleaning the thermal core sink, or fan, from dust?My Mac Pro runs 24/7 and gathers a lot of dust, looking at how clean my desk is around it's base, compared to the rest of...
Resposta para "Best RAM for MacBook Pro Late 2011?"I am using 2x8GB 1600MHz RAM modules in this MacBook Pro. Works noticeably faster than the standard 1333MHz. Update (02/05/2022): I used the 16GB config for nearly 2 years and never noticed overheating problems. The RAM was stable and the machine worked so well that at some point I wasn’t aware anymore of the modified configuration (now 2x8GB at 1600)! I sold the machine in the end due Mac upgrade. RAM never failed on me, the system worked fine (no overheating as I applied new thermal paste way before the RAM upgrade (Arctic Silver, I recall?)). Just in case I would get my hands on one of the 2011 MacBook Pro again, I would do the same thing: new thermal paste and RAM upgrade. After SSD upgrades (Bay 1 SATA 3 and Bay 2 SATA 2) this RAM change was hands down the best upgrade.
Resposta para "Cleaning the thermal core sink, or fan, from dust?"Hi, thanks for your answers. I would rather not open my (AppleCare covered) machine -if I can- to clean the fan, although it's very tempting to do so. iFixers by nature, right? Either way, I will try to use the canned air trick as suggested. At the same time, I decided to try (ordered) the "COREFILTER - Air Filter Base for Apple Mac Pro" to provide the base of the machine a dust filter. Will provide feedback regarding the fitting, use, dust capture, cleaning, airflow, etc, if desired. It's not a sales pitch or promo, just feedback on an attempt to solve the dust-problem.
