ArctiClean is the first retail product to emerge from the union of Arctic Silver and Nanotherm technology. ArctiClean is a two-step cleaning process that removes existing thermal grease or pads and prepares the thermal surface for a fresh application of thermal interface material.

ArctiClean 1 totally emulsifies thermal pads and thermal greases. The waxes, oils, and fillers of the thermal material are suspended within the ArctiClean 1 so they can be cleaned off completely. This emulsification allows ArctiClean to remove the thermal material in the microscopic imperfections in the heatsink or heat spreader that non-emulsifying cleaners cannot touch. The flash corrosion inhibitors in ArctiClean 2 then significantly reduce the corrosion layer on the copper or aluminum, improving the interface between the metal and the new thermal material and maximizing thermal transfer.

  • newegg Unique 2-Step Process ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover quickly emulsifies and dissolves the existing thermal grease or pad from the CPU and/or heatsink so that it can easily be removed with a clean cloth or paper towel. A few drops of ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier and some gentle wiping then removes the remaining residue and inhibits flash corrosion on copper or aluminum.
  • newegg ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover ArctiClean 1 uses a proprietary combination of non-toxic biodegradable solvents to emulsify thermal greases or thermal pads. The citrus and soy based solvents in ArctiClean 1 match or exceed many hazardous and volatile solvents such as fluorinated and chlorinated organic solvents, acetone, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), mineral spirits, isopropyl alcohol, and toluene.
  • newegg ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier The cationic surfactants in ArctiClean 2 remove any residue left by the ArctiClean 1 leaving a pristine surface for the application of a new thermal interface material. It also incorporates advanced flash corrosion inhibitors that minimize the corrosion layer on copper and aluminum allowing for more intimate contact between the thermal interface material and the heatsink.
  • newegg Using ArctiClean 2 With Other Solvents Most solvents and cleaning products leave residue on the CPU and heatsink that negatively affects the performance of any subsequently applied thermal interface material. ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier removes the residue of citrus or petroleum based cleaners and inhibits flash corrosion on a copper or aluminum heatsink.
  • newegg Why Not Just Use Isopropyl Alcohol or Acetone? Put isopropyl alcohol or acetone on a thermal pad and 10 minutes later you will have a thermal pad. Only with a lot of rubbing and scrubbing will you be able to remove the pad. While the alcohol or acetone may soften the pad, neither actually dissolves the pad. Although less visible, it is the same cleaning thermal greases with alcohol or acetone.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well!!

Pros: This works well, and is a requirement for every techies bag. First I wiped as much of the old Arctic Silver off with a cloth. Then I put a couple drops on a Q-Tip and rubbed it on. Magically every last bit of the paste dissolved off. Did that a couple times to make sure, and then did the same thing with the other bottle to purify the surface. Works well!

Cons: None I can think of. It does smell a bit, but oh well, that's just the way it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Easy to use, does a great job. Plenty left over to help a friend with some computer work.

Cons: your home will smell like citrus for 12 hours if you don't like citrus smell.

Other Thoughts: Worked excellently, easy to use, instructions (if needed) are easy to follow.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and easy

Pros: This Material Remover is very fast. It took 1 application and a few seconds of clean up to remove the generic thermal paste I had used on my processor. The Surface Purifier works perfect. My processor hasn't been so clean since the I removed it from it's package.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsThis stuff is amazing, efficient and time saving.

Pros: Little things like this make life so much easier. Some people do not wipe off the bulk of the thermal paste before they apply this remover, I do NOT recommend this as it causes the paste to become muddy and messy, and I do not believe this is how it was intended to be used. I HIGHLY recommend wiping off the bulk of the thermal paste with a paper towel first, and then all you need is 2 or 3 drops of remover to make your chip sets clean as a whistle :) one bottle has lasted me almost 2 years, 3 different PCs, always upgrading parts and paste.. Then 2 or 3 drops of the surface purifier and she's as good as new. I could not recommend this product more.

Cons: Absolutely NONE.

3 out of 5 eggsEasy to Use

Pros: Does its job, and does it very well.

Just one or two drops works perfectly. Just enough to lightly cover the paste. Wait a couple minutes and carefully wipe off with a cotton-tip swab. Try not to wipe the paste onto the side of the processor, makes it more difficult to fully remove. Dry up any remaining paste and wetness. Use the purifier to clean any extra marks and make sure the surface is shiny.

Cons: It is a wee-bit messy if you use even a little to much on the paste. While it does make it easier to remove, it also tends to turn it into a muddy substance that takes a while to fully wipe off.

Other Thoughts: Would be great if there was some sort of tool to use. Something like a small flat surface to use as type of squeegee or scoop.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Purifies surfaces well prior to applying thermal compound.
The citrus smell is an added bonus.

Cons: A visual diagram would be nice for first-time users.
Rubbing alcohol pads seem to do a better job cleaning surfaces without spreading the old applications.

Other Thoughts: Follow the instructions when using this product. Avoid getting the liquid on components other than the surfaces you wish to purify. Clean up isn't entirely easy, although the citrus smell is nice.

5 out of 5 eggsStuff works

Pros: The stuff really does work, if you don't like scrubbing thermal grease over and over with a alcohol swab...

Remover has a pleasant citrus like smell!

Cons: None at this point.

Other Thoughts: Wear some latex gloves it will dry your skin out quick!
