Off of Arctic Silver's website:

CAUTION!
Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive is a permanent adhesive.
Components you attach with Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive will stay attached forever.

Arctic Silver Thermal Adhesive should be kept cold and away from UV light (sunlight and florescent lighting).
We recommend refrigerating the unused material and allowing it to come to room temperature prior to use.


I guess you just have to get it right the first time!

Unless you really need the extra cooling, an aftermarket air would probably be the best option. Water loops need to be cleaned, which will be impossible with a permanently attached block.

Is this for your 680i? If so, I'm pretty sure that the cooler is held on with push-pins.

Yah, I'm POSITIVE that I'm cooling this thing with liquid. As for cleaning, yah, that sounds like a pain in the *** and near impossible.

Any other options? Is their anything that is a little less permenant? I know that I have heard of people mixing thermal epoxy's with thermal grease...
