If you are reading this then you have probably at one time or another had to remove thermal interface material from a heatsink.  You might be taking the ineffective crap off of a stock heatsink or merely reapplying it after swapping out a CPU.  At any rate, cleaning thermal grease is a royal pain.  Nothing seems to cut through it and even if something does, it usually leaves behind a residue that defeats the entire point of using thermal grease.  Well imagine if I told you that I had a magic bottle of stuff that would eat through thermal grease like a hot knife through butter and not leave a trace of itself behind after wiping it off.  Too good to be true you say?  Well thanks to our good friends at Arctic Silver that day is here.

I have always used Arctic Silver from the very beginning.  By always, I mean I've never put a heatsink on anything without scrapping off the stock paste and slaving away with isopropyl alcohol and a rag to get off the crusty remains.  While this is a real hassle, the rewards of having a more reliable CPU with lower temps are worth it.

Imagine how happy I was when I realized that these two bottles were going to do what used to take me 30 minutes of hard work in 2 minutes of me staring at the ceiling.  Not to mention it would most likely do a much better job than I could ever do.
