So I saw a Youtube video explaining why the Macbook Air from this year throttles and suffers from performance spikes to easily and found this picture of the internals.

If you are wondering how the fan on the left helps to CPU to cool during any load... yeah, it simply does not. Everything is betted on that heatsink on top of the chip.

@eskuero Louis Rossmann has worked on a MacBook Air exactly like that. Absolutely loves the concept, he does.

@thatbrickster I actually saw this video, I understand the rage it's fucking bullshit

@eskuero Apple Geniuses probably getting ready to say the decision not to connect the heatsink to the fan was a cost-saving measure.
