My unit : PH315-52-5520 is still under warranty.
I'm haven't really done this on a laptop before and am scared of damaging it and don't have all the resources to do the same.
I want my laptops whole cooling unit to be cleaned and maybe even re-paste the thermal compound at the same time.
It's quite clear that it's clogged up as i cant see through the grills, I've tried undervolting (stable at - 0.135V) and all other solutions but the temperatures are still high, peaking at 95 C on CPU, averaging around 91 C. GPU settles at 87 C as that is its thermal limit while gaming/any heavy workload.
So will Acer do this for me?
Will they charge anything extra?
If yes, how much? (rough estimate)
I know it looks disgusting, it's been 11 months and i move around alot. I live in a very dusty and humid conditions.
