Trying to re-paste and get new pads for this thing, does anyone have pictures and/or a list of the thermal pads used so that I know what thickness to get?

 

Also, what is the highest capacity battery that I can get? does anyone have a link to it?

 

Thanks - Gil

Sure, -HP- may not offer.... but there are other people, such as LaptopMedia, and Jayz2cents, who do teardowns and stuff.

I found (this ^^) on youtube, after a pretty simple search.
Sure, it may not have been under the heatpipes, but its a pretty good image that would let me reverse-engineer how i would go about upgrading the cooling.

I would not use thermal pads.

 

Use some thermal paste instead, perhaps some top tier stuff from Arctic Silver. Remove all vestiges of the thermal pads before applying thermal paste.

You can purchase thermal paste online from many online vendors.

 

The high capacity battery part number iinformation:

Do you happen to have an image of the motherboard below the heatsink?

I'd like to know (about) how much paste I'm going to need to buy for this operation.

Unfortunately, HP does not often provide images of notebook system board.

 

There are instructions at the link that I put in my last post.

 

For a notebook processor it does not take more than a dot about the size of a pea.

 

I suggest purchasing the smallest quantity possible, since this isn't something you will be doing often.

Here are the motherboard pictures, by the way.

You do not seem to be aware of what the forum is for, and no I do not work for HP.

 

I am not your bro. 

 

Keep comments like that to yourself and your own brother(s) and friends.

 

I have treated you politely and  not disrespected you so don't do that to me. 

 

Generally only factories, when they initially build PCs and notebooks and people who are afraid to apply thermal interface paste use thermal pads. 

 

PC enthusiasts and knowlegeable people who understand the advantages of different thermal paste types use thermal interface paste, such as Arctic Silver.

 

I suggest you read up on it like the rest of us have done.
