    I bet it still works if cleaned and if no components have physical damage.

    I bought a 8800GT off some dude the other day and it ran really hot so I decided to replace the TIM, this is what I found... Do you think they could have used a bit more TIM? :p

    I remember seeing an article where they published the repair instructions for one of the Macbooks. In it, it said to use the entire tube of thermal paste, and the people responding to the article were showing gobs and gobs of thermal paste on their chips. WTF.

    TacoTown's pictures make me laugh when I see that the processor is still there. It's obvious that whoever encountered it first took all the wires for the copper, but if I came across it, the first thing I would take would be the processor.

    Shouldn't there be those thermal pads there? If so that might be an attempt on recreating them, sort of.

    true, since ram chips can vary in height, you need to use thermal pads. the foam ones.

    in guessing, he wanted to compensate with a lot of paste.

    Not rust, it's sand. This one doesn't float so well.
