How thick they are?
BTW, I have a crazy idea: get rid of the heatsink and put a thick thermal pad directly between the CPU and the back cover. The only thing which is worrying me is that the heatsink has isolation. But I don’t think it is possible to short something by a back cover.

Mine has a thin thermal pad on the CPU, but still went to 100 C in the mprime benchmark before I’ve put a thermal pad between the heatsink and the bottom cover.
I’ve put a small piece of a 1.5 mm thick thermal pad into the grove of the heatsink (the place it contacts CPU) and it lowered the temps by 10-15 degrees under the stress load. I’m using the mprime app to do stress tests.
Before the upgrade it was rocketing to 100 degrees almost immediately and then started to throttle and decrease temp to 60-65…[Read more]
