Hardware repairs again this weekend. This MacBook Pro 17 with quad core i7 and matte display from 2011. Suffered from the usual GPU problem. Cleaned out, heatgunned the GPU, new thermal paste, its now like new again, and fans are quiet. I love this machine.

All fixed. Almost 10 years in, it is still the most gorgeous Mac. Replacing thermal paste helped temperature, too.
