Yeah. I've wondered the same thing. One thing that I don't know is how much torque should be applied to the screws that join the logic board to the heat pipe. There are at least 4, maybe more, screws that go into the logic board that pull the heatpipe assembly up into the board and which aren't for connection to the chassis.

I do know I was getting decent contact between the logic board and the heatpipe because of the double disassembly. I had lots of transfer of the thin layer of thermal paste onto the heat pipe pads from the chips.
