Is it safe to reapply thermal paste on 2012 mac?
My old device macbookpro retina 15 2012 A1398 is heating up easily since i didn't clean it and didn't reapply thermal paste.
I would love to reapply thermal paste/clean,but i just read that you need to remove old paste to apply new one. This makes me nervous,cause I’m not living in EU/US,so taking my device to off-brand Apple service centers will result in dead device in 9/10 cases. 11 years old thermal paste could become a rock and i don't think it's safe to remove rock from copper core(s).
