No offense taken. The thermal paste upgrade is just first instinct for me when I get a computer, usually factory paste is sloppily done or overused... (My iBook is an example of this.)

My MacBook is early CD, but since it's secondhand I have no way to check to see if it's updated until I crack it open. When I do so, I'll be forced to remove the logic board since I'll be dyeing it.

Is it possible to remove the logic with the heatsink still attached?
It's not something I really like to do too often because of the momentary stress it puts on the logic. But to maintain a better thermal connection... I just might.
