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 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

5 out of 5 eggsWorks perfectly

Pros: I'm practically convinced this thermal material remover is magic. Following the instructions on the bottle, I put about 5 drops on each of the CPU and heat sink, waited about 30 seconds, and wiped them off, and every last bit of the thermal compound was *gone*. It says "repeat if necessary" which I did to be safe, but I don't think I needed to. It's a world of difference from the last time I tried to remove thermal paste, when I used isopropyl alcohol, spent 3 hours rubbing the CPU with Q-tips, and still couldn't get it all off.

After using the remover and purifier and applying new thermal compound, my CPU runs 30C cooler under full load. That probably has more to do with the shoddy condition of the previous thermal compound than anything else, but it sure seems like the remover and purifier are doing their job.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Each of the remover and purifier comes in a 30 mL bottle even though you only need about 10-20 drops for each CPU. That makes it good for a tech shop or anyone who services computers on an industrial scale, but for personal use, hope you have about a hundred friends to share this with.

5 out of 5 eggsLong lasting - Never fails to amaze.

Pros: Does what it advertises - Truly makes cpu/gpu clean up breeze.

Cheap and works amazingly well - I am still surprised every time.

Cons: Sometimes you have to apply the step one bottle twice - but I think thats due to the horrible stock thermal paste I am removing is over applied.

Other Thoughts: Truly amazing product - You will be happy with this dependable product. I have been using it for 8 months. It has not lost effectiveness at all.
