Overclcok it crazy, make the CPU hot, then with rubber gloves, take the fan, heatsink, and CPU off. It's not going to be sticky since it's real hot.

I had the same problem with the Heatpad, What I done was got a credit card and placed it in the conor of the CPU and turned the card untill the card was about to snap and then the Processer popped off, but it does pop off too, so make sure you havn't got anything around it and soft ground

I've never had any problems with stock thermal pads.. Its just a little harder to pull off.
