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 eggsI'm impressed!

Pros: - PRICE! It's cheap for what it can do really!
- Easy to use, make sure you read the instruction
- Much more easy to remove old thermal paste from a CPU with this stuff rather than scrape it with a tissue or something.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Seriously, 5$ to ease your life when you change your fan is nothing!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great product. Gets years-old chips caked in thermal compound squeaky clean. A must have for your yearly overhaul.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked like a charm

Pros: I have used this on 2 of my computers so far and it works perfectly.

Both computers had overheating issues due to bad contact between the processor and the heat sync. Cleaned off the old compound using these solutions and added new, both worked like new.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: As always with new egg the shipping was quick and the order process flawless.

5 out of 5 eggsvery helpful

Pros: Very good stuff cleaned the surfaces got rid of the gunk and residue but a side note ALSO great for cleaning a heatsink after lapping it ! it does a great job plus it doesnt have a harsh chemical smell either so safe to use indoors.

Cons: Cons .. hmmm ... doesnt come in tequila flavour ! seriously though AWESOME product. I cleaned off my GTS550ti heatsink and applied the EXACT same brand thermal paste i had on before and 2 degrees lower ! not saying it will make a cooling difference for all but it does do an amazing job.

Other Thoughts: Oddly smells like lemons ?

5 out of 5 eggsA fresh CPU is a cool CPU.

Pros: -As soon as you put a drop of the first step you can see it eating away -at the old thermal paste.
-It had my old, crusty CPU looking like new in no time!
-There is enough for many uses.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: On the bottle it says apply several drops but I recommend doing one drop at a time then wipe away and repeat.

5 out of 5 eggsConvienient

Pros: works more efficiently than a paper towel alone.

Cons: rigid bottles make it difficult to squeeze sometimes.

Other Thoughts: not a necessity, but VERY convenient. pinesol and acetone will work just as well.
