Is it possible to change my Legion Y720's thermal paste of both the processor and the GPU? If that's the case, how often should I change it?

Because of maintenance. I know it has to be changed from time to time because the thermal paste dries and this leads to more heat production. Changing the thermal paste can lower the temperatures on the notebook's components (CPU and GPU).
My notebook is less than 1 year old, but I didn't made this question because I wanted to change it now.
Thanks for your reply!

Changing the original thermal paste to something,thats' alot more premium is gonna give you alot lower temps. I recommend Arctic's MX-4 or Thermal Grizzly's Kryonaut,both great pastes and most importantly non-conductive,so you won't have to worry about risking your device. Altho if you're new to PC maintenance and cooling,I recommend spending a few hours on learning how to do it the proper way. @LinusTech is a good place to start
