Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

Thermal paste is an high heat conductive paste that is applied on the CPU and heat sink to reduce over heating and keep the CPU cool. Thermal paste can lower CPU temps significantly and this is important if you are installing new CPU.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please let me know

Ask Your Own Mac Question

The job of thermal paste is to transfer the heat from CPU to the heat sink and the CPU fan cools the heat sink and thus the CPU as well.

I can't open the question, but I see that you are trying to replace the board. Are you sure the board is compatible with your old CPU ?

Did you buy board and CPU combined or just board ?

Ask Your Own Mac Question

And what is the serial number or model number of your imac ?

Ask Your Own Mac Question

Re the article you sent, the step 47 is regarding connecting the antennas. My question is, what model of board did you buy ?

The reason I'm asking is, board of Macs released on particular year or for particular model of one Mac may not compatible with other year models or other models

The board you bought is the correct one for your Mac. Re the article you sent, the step 47 is regarding connecting the antennas. Are you saying that your new board doesn't have these pins to connect the antennas ?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it is

They are the antennas of the Airport/bluetooth card. So you have to remove the Airport/bluetooth card from old board and install it to new one. Se ehere --> https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+27-Inch+EMC+2546+AirPort-Bluetooth+Card+Replacement/15759

Arctic Silver ArctiClean
Arctic Silver Thermal Paste
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how i use it is ??

You have to take out the CPU from old board and install it on your new board. For instructions, see this link --> https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iMac+Intel+27-Inch+EMC+2546+CPU+Replacement/15764

ArctiClean is to clean the old thermal paste from CPU. You can carefully clean with a cloth swab and no need to use the artic clean solution. DO NOT any water or liquid except the cleaner if you already have it.

When you install the CPU on new board, it is better to apply the thermal paste. For the amount, see here- -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2MEAnZ3swQ

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
What is the amount of thermal surdace purifier ??

The ArctiClean is to clean the old thermal paste from your CPU. You put this cleaner on a cloth and clean the surface of CPU. Once it is clean of old paste, you can put new thermal paste directly on the CPU. Make sure you do it like in the video I sent you. DO NOT put excess paste on the cpu

There is no specific amount of cleaner. Just put a few drops on the cloth and wipe out the old paste from CPU. DO NOT apply cleaner directly on CPU.

You have to do this carefully.

Honestly, I'm not sure what the issue and hard to tell from here. You will have to make sure everything plugged in properly and reconfirm the steps.

You can do the reinstallation. Make sure you follow the steps correctly.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok, but I hope that you keep close to help me
please

You will have to make sure you did everything in the steps and put all connections properly. I'm not even sure if there is any issue with the internal board or power supply.

Puuting too much arctic paste won't prevent it from turning on though.

It doesn't matter. You can put on heat sink or CPU itself. It just need to be applied properly and in a correct amount, like in the article I sent you

Hi there, Yes, I'm back. Is your Mac not getting any power all ?

Ask Your Own Mac Question

If it is still not getting any power, then it is possible that the power supply has failed or something related to power in the board and honestly, I'm not sure what it is. You probably need to take it to the Apple store to get it checked and they will have the required tools to identify and check the board and other components

I turn on the computer now. There is power but a black screen. There is no voice for startup

Try resetting the SMC and PRAM.

First reset the System Management Controller of your Mac. Follow the steps below;

Shut down the computer.

Unplug the power cord and also disconnect all other devices.

Wait 20 seconds.

Attach the power cord.

Wait five seconds,then press the power button to turn on the computer.

Reset PRAM and NVRAM

Shut down your Mac

Restart and immediately hold down Command-Option-P-R keys at the same time

Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for two or three times.

Release the keys and let the Mac boot up.

Any change ?

I'd recommend not to buy that. It is probably some other issue you are having. Your logic might be worked. It is better to take it to the Apple Store and they will find out the issue. I'd not recommend to waste any more money on this.

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
