! ! Pinebook Pro Parts ! ! * IMPORTANT *
#1
Since a large percentage of Pinebook Pro owners will be opening up their laptops   and most of us multiple times.

 There is one Little part we cannot do without.


 The little heat transfer pad for the cpu  ! !


I am certain we cannot go without that,  BUT    I do not see it for sale at the store  ?

The first time I opened my PBP it was stuck to the case, the second time it was stuck to the cpu,

   That shows me it is not permanently attached to ether.

I would really like to buy a few of those before something happens to the original or I lose it.

   PLEASE

The importance of this should be listed in the wiki, without it your cpu will overheat Quickly the case IS your heat sink

You can buy sheets of thermalpad at most electronics stores, just get one with about the same thickness

We probably need the size, (both flat measurements, and thickness), documented on the Wiki, under the disassembly section.

And it would be helpful to know the existing watt/m-k, in case we would like to match or upgrade that component during
replacement. Looking at an on-line retailer, these thermal pads can range from 6W/m-k to 35W/m-k. (The later being electrically
conductive as well, so precautions would need to be taken against short circuits.)

*  OK,  so if  someone with-in the company could give us some kind of specification  ?    *   Then we could purchase those locally....

AND  How about the 'spacers'  ?  I have not had any problems with re-using mine "yet"  Those  would be complex to duplicate easily.

BUT  I see some people have had broken ones, and losing them is also a possibility,  I would purchase a few for the "Just-in-case"  senerio.

.  I would prefer to not leave it open while waiting on parts.   Trying to Plan Ahead.
