this to me is one of those things if you can't manage to do it with just about anything you have lying around then maybe you shouldn't be doing it at all. removing tim needs a video now. ok sure

QFT'ed and +1'ed.

Might be have been in poor taste MacJunky....BUT I was like: WTF?! Then I was like: ROFLMAO :)~

Anyways on topic:

99% alcohol + lint free cloth is how I do it.
I use the pea method for solid base coolers and the multi-line method for HDTs.

I never have the appropriate things around me when I'm working, so I use Scott Towels or Q-tips.

It just works. Didn't even know Artic Clean existed

Ok the coffee filter I got from my friend feels pretty rough... Feels a bit like normal paper, but at the same time it doesn't. I guess I'm fine?

At worst, I can just use Q-tips I guess... Or just go to dollar store...

Default spose to be that way

The rufness of the papper acts like gental sand paper. If you lose the writing on the chip no RMA. But paper wont rub to much off.

If you want to get Extreem Look up Lapping a chip on youtube

I've been using kleenex to clean up thermal paste as long as I've been working with PCs. It's really not something you have to worry about.
