How to take CPU cooler off CPU when thermal paste is holding the two together - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
I use Arctic Silver 5 on all my thermal paste needs! even on my GPU!
post #12 of 29
In the first days of ZIF sockets I once had this problem and just unlatched the locking arm on the socket and the cooler and processor came out safely. It was easy then to just heat up the processor with a lighter and liquefy the paste.

I just started using that thermal paste and the past couple times i have taken the cpu cooler off i got bent pins with other thermal past so i am just afraid it might happen again, but a lot of people recommended arctic silver 5.

i've done it multiple times with OEM machines, they use thermal paste that turns almost into glue after 2-3 years.
Pulling the heatsink pulls the cpu out of the socket. Even when it is still locked.

Use Shin Etsu or Deepcool Z3 Thermal Paste next time.
They get sticky but easier to remove than other tim.

2 degrees difference in temperature isnt worth the trouble of using thermal paste that's hard to remove.
