Replaced Toshiba's Fan and Heat Sink

And put a silver based thermal paste.  Where it used to go 95 C. immediately, it now maxes at 66 C.  I think this is good news.

This  suggests 73 C. is a typical healthy temperature.

It did not help that when I finished this the first time I still had the new fan in the original packaging.  I removed and reinstalled the broken fan!  Fortunately I did not start it up and conclude something else was wrong.
