One way to fix an overheating graphics chip in an iMac
Authored by: Swany on Jan 20, '10 08:50:32AM

Brain surgery. I had this problem with my 2007 iMac, the same issues, smcFanControl helped a bit but the problem kept getting worse. Apple was kind enough to replace the logic board even though it was out of warranty. I think they decide on a case-by-case basis whether or not to fix the problem, they have not recognized it as a general flaw. Maybe anyone with this problem can take the picture into the genius bar and ask if they will perform some trepanation.
