A qualified tech guy replaced the CPU fan, and I dont know if he removed all the thermal compound to be honest. He seemed to replace it very quickly though, like it took him maybe 5 minutes tops. What do you mean by the new compound hasn't set properly? Does this take time? If so, how long usually? It's been in 9 days now.
