I would just say not to expect it to come off completely.
i think its even mentioned on the coollaboratory site,
that it can "upgrade" other tims.. dont think its a big deal if theres some leftovers ..
in my search for delidding without using blades, but to dissolve the adhesive somehow,
i just bought this
HG sticker and sticky label remover allows for the simple removal of stickers, sticker adhesive, rubber adhesive
adhesive tape, tar splashes, greasy patches, oil, heel marks and many other problems, from virtually all surfaces.
i saved all the adhesive from the pentiums, so i can try it on that,
ill put some on the pcb too, to see if it damages that in any way,
i wanted to buy nail polish remover, or aceton, couldnt get aceton(yet),
but it might just work well too..

Well, my IHS did slide as I pushed down the retention clip. Might that cause it?
If I was to redo the application... how can I clean the die and IHS?
yea, could be one reason, theres a little guide, its on page 1,
how to put back the ihs again, not to let it slide on that black sticker
that little black thingy there, is like the mount everest..lol
i tried to take it off completely, but it was very hard to remove,
so i just let it be..
i posted this elsewhere before, about cleaning,
if you have a 10 bucks to spend, its enough to go a long way..
The set contains three components, which provide an excellent cleaning when using correctly.
Phase 1: Preparation
Phase 2: Cleaner
Phase 3: Metal Cleaner
The Liquid Cleaning Set - Phase 3 was designed especially for metallic surfaces (copper, nickel, aluminum etc.)
if i have money, i will buy a set, and see how it works with my liquid pro after months of usage,Edited by VonDutch - 11/15/12 at 5:53am
