I always use some toilet tissue and white spirit. But I heard bad stories about white spirit so you could try without. Always apply a thin layer of Arctic Silver. Very thin.

Use cotton swabs or q-tips. Rub off the hs and processor top, careful not to touch the pins. Make sure you only apply about a a rice grain size of silver on it.

If you still have trouble w/ overheating, make sure to ask us about aftermarket HSF combos
