    Question Thermal paste application.

    Hello everyone.


    I would like to buy Arctic MX-4 and would like to know where I can get it from.
    Before applying it, I also need 99% isopropyl alcohol to remove the old residue, so, where can I get this as well ?


    Thanks.

    mmm I have MX-4 that's good for 3 more applications. You can buy that off me if you want.

    Isopropyl alcohol Is available at all pharmacies.

    Ya acetone should work as well but rubbing alcohol maybe more suitable for this sort of work.

    I've used tissues before with no...issue. I prefer something more durable for the processor cause with a cooler, I can take it off and scrub it however I like but can't do that with the processor. Sometimes it does tear off and once I did get it stuck between the processor and the socket.

    Yes alcohol based solution dry faster and reduces risk. It also softens the existing paste to the point where it is paste-y and not very liquid.

    1. Yes, it's fine to remove the residue by a tissue paper but make sure it doesn't tear and get inside any of the hardware.
    2. Alcohol gives better results in removing the residue than anything else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOd1...ist=WL&index=4
