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 eggsGreat Solutions for Thermal Paste

Pros: - The Arctic Silver cleaning and purifying solutions do their job perfectly. The Remover cleans ten times better than Isopropyl Alcohol and, in my opinion, is much more preferable. The Remover gets rid of old or stock Thermal Paste without any hassle. When combining the use of a Q-Tip or similar product with it, leftover Thermal Paste comes right off. It does a delicate job without any issue, and really only requires a soft touch and little time.
- The Purifier does seem to do its job as well; however, it's much harder to prove or see it in action. The Die surface, after using the purifier, does appear much shinier and cleaner, possibly then allowing the Thermal Paste to be applied and perform better.
- I have little doubt that this doesn't help the Thermal Paste work more efficiently, subsequently allowing the achievement of better temperatures.
- Both bottles come with a generous amount of solution, and having used it several times, barely 10% is gone. For the price, it's a great investment if you plan on cleaning and applying a lot of Thermal Paste or TIM.

Cons: - All pros!

Other Thoughts: - I recommend this product to anyone regularly working with heatsinks or watercooling. I used these solutions on a recent watercooling build that required a lot of stock cooler removal. The temperatures are astounding, due in part I'm sure, to Arcticlean.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: It does what I need it to do. I was running stock thermal grease, so I felt the need to replace it.

- Lowered idle temperatures ~5 Celsius
- Lowered load temperatures ~4-5 Celsius

Cons: It did seem a little runny (not too much, but noticeable) out of the tube, but I am not deducting and egg for that.
