You may need to bend the heatsink a bit - at least some people have had
luck using a penny to press it down more, and you may also find it
useful to change the GPU's thermal interface (which is a thermal pad
about 3mm thick).
In mine, it's really the GPU which is the culprit, as far as I can tell,
even when the machine is idle.
