Thermal tape

Anyone know of a good effective way of removing Intel retail thermal tape
from the processor?

I'm just going to remove it and replace with Arctic Silver.

Denatured alcohol. you must remove any old thermal compound
before applying new. The tape is a protective cover for the
actual thermal compound.

Ron:
Richard is trying to tell you in his inimitable style that you shouldn't
remove the thermal tape from your processor unless you have very good
reasons to do so. I assume the processor's present thermal tape is the one
packaged with the Intel processor. It's a perfectly good product that does
the job it was intended to do.

You can, of course, remove the thermal tape using a variety of substances
including acetone and alcohol (ideally 99% Isopropyl alcohol). But it's
messy business at best and more than one processor has been ruined in the
process. And believe me, it's quite easy to bungle this process.

Arctic Silver is a decent thermal compound, but over-hyped in my judgment.
Again, unless you have a good reason to replace the present thermal tape, my
advice is to leave well-enough alone.

Poorly applied Artic Silver is not as efficient as well applied thermal
tape!

The reason why I want to abandon the thermal tape is because my temps are
running 43-45C. I want to shave a few more degrees off.

As Richard and others have noted in this and other threads, any
difference in thermal performance between _well_ _applied_, decent
quality thermal compounds is unlikely to be perceptible in practice.
Arctic Silver is good for those of us who like to "play with" our
heatsinks and/or processors, since it works well and is reasonably
easy to clean off and reapply. If you plan to assemble a
processor/heatsink combination once and run with it, you are probably
just as well off using the thermal compound that comes with the
heatsink. I would only expect replacing your thermal compound to
improve processor cooling if you know that your processor is running
significantly hotter that it used to under the same conditions (ambent
temperature, load, other heat-producing hardware in case, etc.) and
you have excluded and/or fixed all other possible causes (dust in
heatsink slots, new or moved cabling obstructing airflow, failing
processor or case fans, etc.).

Count your blessings. I wish *every* computer I worked on maintained CPU
temps between 43 - 45C.

Second that! 43-45C is a decent temp for a CPU.

Go to www.intel.com and look up your CPU. It will tell you what the expected
range is and what is too hot. If it is in the expected range then it is
fine. Trying to make it cooler may end up making it run hotter and there is
also the risk of bending pins, etc. A good tech never removes a CPU unless
there is a very good reason for doing so.
