Lenovo legion y530 - Repasting

2018-11-19, 21:09 PM

Hi, does anyone here has a legion y530 and did a respate to it?

This will be my first attempt at repasting laptop components. I mainly do this for my desktop but y'know precaution is a good thing.

I actually found out that the fan and the heatpipes can be take off separately? But i just read it while scrolling through comments.

Can anyone tell me on how you repasted your legion y530?
Or how did you take off the heatsink?
Did you just pry it out after unscrewing?

Never had the Y530, but I did help a friend repaste a Y50's CPU. 

 

By the way, the Y530 is a relatively new machine -- I don't typically recommend repasting unless it's extremely overheating. The thermal paste from the factory should be good for a few years. Repasting might also void your warranty. 

 

But if you're set on repasting the CPU and GPU, here is the HMM that might help you get access to the parts you need: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/legiony530-15ich_y530-15ich-1060_y7000p_y7000p-1060_hmm_201807.pdf

Yes fans and heatsink takes off seperately. It is very easy to change thermal paste. Screws on heatsink are numbered by the way. Just unscrew and take heatsink off while olding both sides. Do it slowly. It is very easy to clean both cpu and gpu(don't forget heatsink). Then after you applied thermal paste just put in back heatsink slowly holding both sides. Put screws back in and that's it. No need to worry about because you just can't break anything

Everyone will have the first time doing it

 

Gently take off the bottom cover after removing all screw (careful on the clips on the sides, I accidentally broke them), unscrew the screws on heatsink according to the numbering on it (they are spring screws - idk how to call those screws) and gently lift it up

 

Use quality thermal paste, avoid MX-4

I was just looking on Amazon for some thermal paste as I feel that this will soon be a project, one not to fail, too. If you have already done this rurbz22, say it went well, hopefully it did, right?

I will be trying the Arctic MX4 based upon reviews, but when pasting, the procedure should not have to be done again or several years, suppose depending upon use.

I would imagine that the GPU can be pasted, too.

I have repasted mine and its true that it can be quite beneficial. My max temps on my cores dropped by 10C just by doing the repaste with a better paste (Thermogrizzly Konduconaut). One thing to take note of is that while you are cleaning your heatsink assembly, take care not to apply too much downwards pressure and try to keep the whole assembly on a flat surface. I accidentally slightly kinked my one heatpipe by applying too much downwards force while trying to scrape the old thermal paste off the heatsink surface. Just something to take note of. Luckily for me the kink does not seem to have negatively affected my thermals.

What about other chips covered by heatsink assembly like GPU RAM etc? Do they need some thermal paste as well?

If you disassembly heatsink you must repaste gpu and cpu because they use same heatsink. Other chips use thermal pads so you don't have to worry about them.
