take the majority off with a towel (I use toilet paper)

then use a towerl, q-tips to take off the remaining and shine it up a bit.

Rice to pea sized drop in the center of the gpu, and reassemble

With an uneven surface from a HDT cooler, it's best to fill in the gaps and use small lines of TIM running parallel with the heat pipes (check out this article).

As for cleaning use isopropyl alcohol (91% is optimal, 70% will work too) and lint-free cloth...coffee filter paper will work if you don't have any on hand

Glad to see it worked out, i re-seated my 6970 Direct CUII today and got great temps as well (used a grain of rice in the center of the GPU)

EDIT: to help others help you in the future, you should add your system to your signature here
