Maybe someone already answered this but I can't read 439 pages to find out, but does the reference cooler cut it if you are willing to run the fan at 90% or higher? I am not talking about a crazy over clock, but being able to hold 1ghz. I don't care about the noise as I only use the machine for gaming and I always use headphones.
The adhesive strips I am talking about are on the new bezel and housing. There are like 150 pieces to take off!! I just rip the bezel off with brute force because it doesn't get reused anyway.
Yes.As for the hackintosh question, it should work except sensors may be wrong or not work at all.
I have no idea why but many of us at work call it a "roggy-bow". Completely unrelated, but I thought everyone did this when replacing top cases on unibody MacBooks (2009-2010), but you can move the display, Airport/speaker assembly and optical drive all in one piece when transplanting to the new case. Apparently none of the other techs in my company realized this. It saves time and avoids having to deal with disconnecting the antenna connectors and that annoying tiny...
I use iStat Menus but there are a bunch out there, some free, some not. iStat looks the best in my opinion.What Air do you have? I am using a 2010 1.6ghz C2D, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD.

My daily MacBook Air.
Just a tip on those 6970 failures. We've gotten a bunch that have all the symptoms but do not fail the test. I've done the following to get it to covered. I run Heavenbench and record a video of it crashing, show that to TSPS and get a CS or sometimes I get lucky and after a few hot runs of Heaven and crashing and then immediately booting into the tester, it fails.
It's not shady at all. It's not really a recall, it's just a program where they will fix it for free for three years. It's right on their website, available for anyone to see.
The 2010 MBP thing only offers three years of coverage and lately every one we've gotten in is older than 3 years old by now. Xeb, you guys getting hit with a bunch if Air SSDs? We ordered some on the 16th and they finally just shipped last night.
I was kidding.
