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.

3 out of 5 eggsperforms, but not worth it

Pros: Does what is asked

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I have since used 200 proof Ethyl Alcohol and it does the job to the same if not better standard. I'd use that instead and save your money.

5 out of 5 eggsThermal Paste Cleaner!

Pros: Does the job
Professional
Official ( you know this stuff is safe for your pc)

Cons: Maybe to pricey. (But if you apply something not evaluated to go on cpus, your fault if something happens.)

Other Thoughts: It does what it says it does. After looking at a few other reviews, ive decided that it depends on how much you care about your pc. A lot of people are saying you should use rubbing alcohol, and this is just lemon juice. Fact is if you're someone at a computer store you want to be professional, use this stuff. If you don't care about what you apply to your cpu buy alcohol. I spent 200 bucks on my cpu I'm not about to risk that by using some alcohol. If this screws it up at least i have them to blame not me.

Overall Buy this stuff if makes you look official, you are official and you're not applying something you don't know what will do your cpu. You dont wanna be a professional store charging big dollars to be wiping cpus with alcohol from local stores. This was enough to do plenty cleans. Smells like oranges.

5 out of 5 eggsI will rebuy them again

Pros: They do the job for removing the thermal paste.
Few drops of the product each time.
Can be use multiple times before the bottles get empty.
Don't need to remember the instructions. They are on the bottles.

Cons: Dont use both at the same time, read the instruction on the bottles.

Other Thoughts: I ain't a chemist, why not have the 2 bottles effect into 1.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: Removes dried thermal paste so well compared to alcohol! I was skeptical at first, but after having tried both, I can definitely see a huge difference in ease and thoroughness in removing thermal compound.

Smells great too lol

Cons: Price is a little high

5 out of 5 eggsNice product and simple to use.

Pros: I was able to use this product with great ease and was simple to use. I used an alcohol pad along with parts A & B and after cleaning off the cpu with each part I used canned air to blow dry the cpu. I was amazed at how clean the cpu as well as the water cooling part came clean. I was able to then apply paste with no problems at all. I will use this product many times over.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this product to others. This product will eliminate the problem with contamination and give any surface a nice area for the paste to work with.
