One way to fix an overheating graphics chip in an iMac
Authored by: Scooper on Jan 22, '10 07:35:36PM

I probably should have mentioned that I was quoted around $1000 to replace the logic board by my local Apple shop. Apple refused to fix it because it was out of warranty, even though a large number of users have had similar problems. Better cooling solutions with other fans etc would be a good idea but I'm not that handy. With these holes and the fans turned up my computer works fine when it's 30 to 33 degrees C outside (86 -91 degree F). I can see it's not a solution that everyone likes, but the price suits me.
