Not sure, but don't try alcohol. I tried alcohol on an x1300 that had that crap all over it and all it did was make it wet.

For future reference, Arctic Silver has the best thermal material remover anywhere. It is called ArctiClean and it can remove any thermal material you can think of. I have yet to run into any that it could not clean. If you do much PC building then I highly recommend it.
