    I have, but you do not mention are/where the screws need to open the keyboard, as well as the metal frame. You mention that is difficult, but not the procedure in how to get it done.

    Thanks.

    Just ordered a 0,5mm thermal pad. Just going for an easy mod, thermal pad on top of original heatsink. starting with 0,5mm. Ifs not thick enough I just put Another on top makin it 1mm.

    No screws, to open the keyboard, just inside to remove the circuit board to allow the metal plate to be removed.

    To open the keyboard you need to use a plastic tool to avoid scratches. You can start near the usb port pressing in the junction, and going all around. I’ve used these tools.

    Nipaph, as far as I can see you only glued a thermal pad on the heatsink rather than adding a copper plate or something like that between the cpu and the heatsink. Did you measure how much difference in the maximum temperatures your mod achieves? I don’t want to bother wth the copper heatsink, but I can add a thermal pad when I open the tablet up for upgrading the SSD.

    I measured about 10 °C less with the mod doing some benkmark tests.

    I did this easy mod because i read somewhere that with the ‘hard mod’ there weren’t much difference.

    Thanks, 10 °C is good enough for me 🙂
