    Hi everyone!

    I just bought a refurbish 16" MacBook Pro 2.3Ghz /16GB/ AMDRadeon 8GB /1TB and it looks amazing!
    I setup all my apps including (FCPX and Luminar 4). I tested ran GeekBench and and Cinebench and got a score! It was lower than what its suppose to be.
    My MBP 16" wasn't throttling but it's was reaching 100C* while I was doing the test, using TGPRO!
    After all of this... I decided to do a thermal paste reapplication using IC Diamond 24 Carat.

    It took me almost 1 1/2 hours to do the disassembling of MBP and thermal paste reapplication. And what I get after???
    My idle is used to be around 48-55C and now 39-43C / Load was from 75-85C Fan running at high! and now 65-75C at 4500RPM.
    I have the video and proof! Let me know guys if you want me to post it here.
    I took a screenshot of my system check it out! Screen Shot 2020-04-19 at 8.01.33 PM.png

    It isnt worth doing. If you want pay someone from an authorized service center to do it on your behalf. If that breaks then say $2400 good bye.

    You should put that in your signature. It gives credence to your comment. :)
