How to Upgrade Heatsink on Any Laptop

Upgrading the heatsink on a laptop can significantly improve thermal performance and reduce the chances of CPU thermal throttling. While the methods can slightly vary from one laptop model to another, the fundamental process remains consistent. In this guide, we'll discuss how to upgrade a heatsink using the Teclast F6 Laptop as an example.

Why Upgrade a Heatsink?

Over time, laptops can start to heat up due to dust accumulation, aging thermal paste, or demanding software. This can lead to thermal throttling, where the CPU reduces its speed to avoid overheating. Upgrading or modifying the heatsink can help dissipate heat more effectively, leading to improved performance and longevity of the device.
