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 eggsThermal Remover

Pros: worked like a charm, with 1-2 applications your CPU gets nice and shinny, leaves a orange zest type of smell when used, pretty interesting.

Cons: unless you plan on cleaning over 200 CPU's your probably gonna have this sitting around for a while, not so much a con but they give you more than enough to go around

Other Thoughts: was surprised to see how big the bottles were, I expected much less, gave me bit of a WOW factor when I saw the item

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Cleaned the old thermal paste off very quickly and easily. It also has a nice dropper that can be used to apply the stuff precisely.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It does smell like oranges... I don't really know mouch about it other than that. I never cleaned thermal paste off with alcohol or anything before.

5 out of 5 eggsremoves old compound quick and easy

Pros: easy to use and apply. Just follow the directions and you will be able to remove all the old compound quickly.

This was the first time I had to reapply compound and when I saw this I thought it would be good. I was right

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Only needed a few drops to remove the compound from my cpu and heatsink so a smaller bottle would have been nice but I won't drop any eggs because of it.

5 out of 5 eggsMust Have Two Items when Changing/Upgrading to New Coolers

Pros: Cleans the thermal compound off really well. You only need to apply two to three drops then use a lint free cloth to wipe everything off. Afterwards use the Surface purifier to prepare the surface.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Every time you remove the heat sink or about to apply new thermal paste - you need to clean the surface with Thermal Material Remover and Surface Purifier. Then afterwards apply new thermal company. Many people sometime remove heat sink or block to readjust with doing the above things which will cause poor heat transfer and leads to higher CPU temps.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent value, but it goes quickly.

Pros: Fast, effective, efficient, smells great.

Cons: Messy, messy and... messy.

Other Thoughts: I'm almost 100% certain that the remover is actually just Goo-Gone or Goof-Off, honestly. I've compared them with it and it was like I was in the presence of triplets. Also, this stuff works wonderfully in cleaning the contacts for retro video game cartridges.

5 out of 5 eggsI really liked this product.

Pros: You can do the job without this stuff, but I'm glad I got it. Worked very well, even smelled better than I thought. I got my CPU cleaned quicker than ever. I used a combination of cotton swabs, balls, and thick paper towels to clean my heatsink and CPU surface.

Cons: None
