what is the best way to get the old termal paste off?
Honestly, the absolute best product to remove thermal paste and purify the CPU IHS & HS is:
ArctiClean by Arctic Silver
Get both the cleaner and purifier. The cleaner is a citrus based product that is INCREDIBLE at breaking down any thermal material so it easily just wipes off with a few wipes. The purifier removes left-over residue.
I've tried every suggestion and NOTHING works faster or better than that. I've had those for about 3 years and I wouldn't use anything else. (I sound like an infomercial. lol)
Seriously, though... It's the best.
