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 eggsGreat stuff

Pros: Cleans surface well
Preps it well too.
has plenty to do many jobs.
Used on older CPU heat sink and dropped 10 degrees C

Cons: If you don't put one new egg doesn't accept that and makes you sign in and type your review all over again.

5 out of 5 eggsEerily good cleaning solution

Pros: -Cleared up five year old thermal paste
-No fumes or other annoying 'surprises' that I noticed

Cons: -No actual cons. I I had to say something, I would say that you should have your lint free wipes at the ready, as this stuff works quickly.

Other Thoughts: I used this with Arctic Silver's Ceramique 2, and it drastically decreased system temps

5 out of 5 eggsCleans Well

Pros: Used for first time on my new CPU to remove factory paste.
The two step process left the CPU spotless.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Plenty left over for a few more uses when removing air cooler for periodic cleaning.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it advertises and does it well.

Pros: For anyone who likes tinkering with systems and swapping parts back and forth this is a great thing to have on hand whenever you want to move your processor to another board, or just swap out your heatsink. I can see why some might say it's too expensive as you could just use some rubbing alcohol and be done with it. But after having done that a number of times I feel that the combination of these two products really gets back down to the bare metal much better than just alcohol. I also just find it really convenient having the two small bottles in a handy size for application for this specific purpose. Maybe just a nice to have but I find it very nice and convenient to have any time I need to clean a heatsink and CPU. I love seeing that heat spreader look like it just came out of the box all over again before I apply fresh thermal compound. And the soak and wipe method of cleaning makes it easy to clean the CPU with a minimum of handling. I also really like how it's packaged as the droppers make it very easy to accurately and frugally apply, and having the instructions printed clearly on each bottle makes things nice and easy when ti comes time to use it again.

Cons: I can see how some would say the cost in unnecessary and therefor a con, but for me the few dollars are worth the nice to have convenience and value.

Other Thoughts: I'd easily recommend this to anyone who thinks they'd ever be cleaning thermal compound off of a CPU or heatsink more than once in their life. Worth the few dollars for the convenience and thorough job this stuff does. Can't really see how they could improve on the product or the applicator bottles it comes in.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst time user

Pros: I used to clean with Iso-propyl alcohol pads and I was amazed at how much more was removed after cleaning with alcohol!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Sure would recommend it for those who really like to install CPU thermal paste as well as possible!
