    At the risk of taking this thread further off topic, my damned G5 quad has started to overheat.
    I don't see a lot of dust buildup on the radiators and the fans are all working.

    How difficult is it to remove the LCS and the CPUs to check on their condition and the thermal paste.
    And what if I take this apart, put it back together, and I still have the problem?

    Additionally, should I try to rebuild the LCS system?

    Edit: Everything I find online recommends replacing the CPUs and LCS, I can't see why this can't be serviced.

    Again, sorry to take this thread further off course.
