Same thing, A900 overheating

\015 I have mine on a chill plate to keep it cooled. replaced CPU and thermal paste. fan is running , so im thinking it may be a bad heatsink.\015

Answers :

The most common overheating problems that occur with laptops is usually due to a build up of dust in the ventilation grills. This is usually determined because the fan is running constantly.
All you have to do is make sure all the air vents, grills and CPU fan blades are completely free of dust.
Also make sure that the heatsink is sat level on the processor itself as an unbalanced heatsink will certainly cause the laptop to overheat.
