I need to remove the old thermal paste from under my stock HS/fan (btw, it's an AMD athlon 64) it's the stock HS/fan that came with the cpu. Now, the place where I always buy my computer related stuff from had theese two things to offer: 1.Coollaboratory Liquid MetalPad 3xCPU, 3xGPU + Cleaning set ( I really need to change the thermal paste for the Arctic Cooler on my Radeon aswell.) 2.TherMaxTech XtFlux-GA High Performance Nanotechnology cooling paste (long name, huh?) The last mentioned (2) is new on the market he said. Also, they import it themselfs so it's cheap. It contains a combination of high-purity particles and silicone oil , it's thermal resistance is : 0.067 °C cm²/W. Also it can stand temps up to 200°C (or 392°Fahrenheit). Both are the same price : 22€uro (32US$ / 16£). What to choose?? Also, how do I remove this "thermal paste" from under the HS? It's almost like chewing gum... Thankful for any replies.
