    • cut a thin piece of alloy to the same size as the existing shim, i used an old alloy door push plate(easy to cut) & is the ideal thickness

    • Thoroughly clean the chip with pure alcohol, then apply an even spread of good quality thermal paste(Arctic silver 5) will never let you down

    • THen apply more thermal paste to the top of the shim

    • The new alloy shim is under the existing thin shim. I've done more than 20 of these repairs & had 100% success rate I always do the same to the CPU (might as well your already in there).,

    • This is the CPU with the new alloy shim fitted.
