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 very well, noticeable difference over isopropyl alochol alone.

Pros: ¤ Thermal paste seems to adhere much better. For instance, after using the remover + purifier I applied my usual MX-2 and noticed that it literally glued the cpu to the heatsink after just a couple days! (This is a good thing, as it is proof that there are very few air bubbles where heat does not disperse adequately.) When using isopropyl alochol alone (90%+) I have noticed that, although appearing clean, it does not have nearly the contact. I am convinced that this is due to the purifier working its way into the micro-pores of the copper/aluminum and allowing for a more thorough bonding and thus (albeit marginal) increased heat dispersion.

¤ Noticeable difference in cleaning ability versus using isopropyl alcohol alone. Less work required to get the tough gunk out of really old school computers whose owners just wont relent! lol

¤ Enough product to last a very long time. I applied the cleaner VERY generously and still managed to get over 20 full motherboard cleanings out of the bottles. (MB, NB/SB, GPU)

Cons: ¤ Marginal measurable effectiveness. I did notice a couple degrees celcius difference while under load on average in most instances. However this is very marginal and is within the error threshold so I cannot say for certain that this product increases the effectiveness of thermal paste.

Other Thoughts: In my experience and opinon, it is well worth the money. I do notice a marginal increase in cooling, plus less elbow grease means less chances of damaging something critical. Not to mention, you just cant beat the shine after that last application of purifier. mmhmm. :D

2 out of 5 eggsWorks, but unnecessary.

Pros: Yes, this stuff does work well to remove old thermal paste.

Cons: Not better than 91%+ isopropyl alcohol.

Other Thoughts: 91% isopropyl alcohol can be found at any drug store, is far cheaper, and you get far more for your money.
