It is hard to find a good thermal paste guide anywhere. And even a good thermal paste removal guide. I am confused on why you want to remove thermal paste? I am going to be thermal pasting Some Xbox's and an xbox 360 to help reduce heat with arctic silver 6. I can understand removing the old paste for that however how much would you suggest paste I put on and how would you suggest I apply it with? THen for Computers when you are moving a procceser, and procceser heat sink from computers do you need to really remove all the paste and reapply everytime after you use cleaning solvent? or can you reuse old paste is ok? I want to make sure all my machines are running properly So i am planning on cleaning with arcitc silver compund solution, and then reapplying paste. My main questions are. How much thermal paste should you apply exactly over a procceser that is going to have a huge like 3 lb heat sink on it? How important is cleaning thermal paste off every how often in a proccesers life? and what are some good technique or towel types to use with the compund? just paper towel? how much thermal paste should go on a 360? it is about the same as a computer procceser I am assuming it gets really hot it is a tripple core procceser. Any sites or lnks to thermal paste application, usage, and other things about it would be greatly appreciated!
