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: - Cleans and purifies the surface of the CPU very easily and makes it look like a brand new CPU out of the box.
- To me it smells like tangerine oranges

Cons: None that I can currently think of, other then requiring a bit of hard sqeezing

Other Thoughts: Does it's job better then cleaning alcohol. Get some of this if you do a lot of CPU re installations/ heatsink changes.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Product

Pros: I was impatient when I had ordered this and it was the last thing to arrive. So I just decided to use the rubbing alcohol method. When it arrived I decided to redo my thermal paste. I have to say that I was impressed at how much better it was at removing the paste. It didn't take nearly as long, and my CPU cooler looked better than when I used the rubbing alcohol.

Cons: It smells when you're using it. Just make sure you open a window or something

5 out of 5 eggsPERFECTION

Pros: Just a few drops on a coffee filter, and clean your surfaces completely. It works great. I repeated the cleaning a few times to makes sure I got everything absolutely perfectly clean. Then be sure to COMPLETELY Dry the surfaces for your new thermal compound. Both bottles have plenty of cleaning solution, and that is great!

Cons: Nothing bad at all. You get PLENTY in both bottles! It is real chemicals, so be sure not to get it on your hands and of course don't drink it, silly!

Other Thoughts: As you should be, be exceptionally careful when you handle CPUs. Avoid touching or bending the pins, only clean surfaces when the CPU is carefully mounted into place.

Put drops on coffee filter, never, NEVER squirt fluids into or onto you motherboard!!!
