Errol, thanks for replying.  What kind of thermal pads did you use?  I tried to replace them using ones recommended here:  http://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/44267/How+do+I+replace+heat+sink+with+both+thermal+paste+and+pads.  But they were too skinny and very difficult to apply.  I doubt it will do much good.  In doing so, I removed the pads, partially ripping one (and the other has dust on one of the sides).  Maybe I could clean the dust off as best as possible and re-stick both on?  If anybody knows what kind of pads would offer nice, thick, sticky surfaces and would be easy to apply, please let me know.
