Let us know how it goes, other people may be curious to see what the difficulty level or feasibility level is for the average computer person.

I have repasted a few things like that, locate heatsink remove, clean, and redo just like a computer. not to many things will have actual heatsinks on them so usually not to difficult to find.

Any difference in temps or noise? My QNAPs have never run loud, so I assume the temps are within normal range. The HDDs are always the audible part for me, these IronWolf's being the loudest yet... but I guess it's because they're 7200rpm.

The teardown doesn't look THAT bad, but yeah, that paste looked pretty crappy. Guess that whole process gave you a good opportunity to get the dirt off that fan too? Anyway, given the temp drop, it appears the process was successful..... congrats! (y)
