Modder Improved Cooling For Nexus 6P, Warranty Voided Undoubtedly

Senior XDA member Gorgtech performed a hard modification to his warranty-less Nexus 5 and 7 so decided to do the same to his Nexus 6P whose warranty was voided as well.

An XDA thread shows the tedious and difficult disassembly of the Nexus 6P, starting with carefully heating and removing the capturing camera glass, which takes a steady hand and lots of patience.

Gorgtech then removes the entire rear panel which looks even more difficult than the capturing camera hump’s glass. Once the more problematic parts were out of the way, screws and clips hrecent the boards in place.

The post shows you where to add thermal paste to improve the cooling ability of the Nexus 6P, ultimately reducing the amount of thermal throttling of the roaring Snapdragon 810 chip.

Head over to the XDA thread if you’re feeling indubitably adventurous. I’ve repaired and ruined a bunch of devices in my day, but I will not likely try such a modification. Maybe if I still have the phone after my factory warranty expires, I MIGHT consider it.
