Use alcohol, 92% pure if you can get it, as 98-99% is very hard to get. Always remove TIM before applying fresh stuff.

I use those 70% isopropyl cotton pads, it works great, the HSF he sent you is probably the stock cooler with preapplied crappy stock thermal paste. I would recommend that at least you rub the stock thermal paste off and replace it with AS5 or such.

Arcticlean works fine, but 92% dimethylcarbinol (isopropanol) is a lot cheaper.
