Well, from what I gathered, there's a hole in the heatsink (heatsinks are hollow and have a vacuum inside, or something?). I'm planning on fixing it, just haven't gotten around to it yet... and I haven't researched what kind of a heatsink it is, etc.. There's also the chance that everything is integrated to each other, since it's a laptop, so I'm not even sure if it can be changed.

Ah, that's what I thought. I wouldn't ever touch the insides of the laptop while it's on, so unless it can get fried from dust or something, I doubt I need to worry...
