Follow this guide to replace a faulty motherboard in the Nintendo Switch game console.
'''Note:''' When you remove the shield plate, you’ll need to replace the thermal compound between the plate and the heatsink. Since normal thermal paste isn’t designed to bridge large gaps, the closest replacement is K5 Pro viscous thermal paste. You will, however, need regular replacement thermal paste for the CPU.
'''Note:''' There are two different models for the Nintendo Switch (model HAC-001, released in 2017, and model HAC-001(-01), released in 2019). Make sure your replacement motherboard is compatible with your specific Switch console.
