    Ok, so I'm a complete noob at this, so I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. My Switch fan started getting pretty loud and I know it has something to do with the heat sink, but what paste/pads should I get and where do I put them?

    [​IMG] I used normal PC thermalpaste for Nvidia chip(artic mx-4). I removed the copper cover and coverd the hole chip with thermal paste. I used bit of thermalpaste on the ram and put thermalpads on it. Used the metal cover again and used on the metal cover thermals pads on the location of the ram. I used just some thermal pad on the heatsink.
    Here some picture:
