Its always something I do unless its in warranty.
It's always a fair statement that factory pasting/thermal-pads are not the best, and typically the weakest point of a laptop cooling solution. This is almost a laptop MOD, so if you are comfortable with ripping your laptop apart I am with Enaberif on this one. Otherwise make sure all your warrantee paperwork is in order and get it serviced after (if) it dies.

I would guess this is not a gamer series laptop but more a multimedia series laptop instead? And not to go O.T. but I heard dust-can juice was conductive.
