Thermal pad
« on: March 08, 2002, 03:42:00 PM »

Ok, since most of the coolers come with that damn pad on the bottom, has anyone found a clean way to get them off?  I can't find any of my household cleaning solutions that can make any headway.  I was thinking of scraping it off with a razor, but I'm worried about scoring the finish.

Any ideas would be most welcome.

i use a credit card, then wipe it down gently with nail polish remover sometimes if it's real stubborn. or if i can get my hands on Goo Gone, i'll use that. Its a bit less lethal than NP remover ;)

I took off the pad on my Volcano7 with just a clean sharp razor.  just hold the razor at an angle that's already close to the heatsink so you'll have a sharp yet smooth edge.  Then scrape the pad off gently.  you can lap it a bit just in case you cut some shallow lines.
