Well...when the thermal pad gets sued the firt time, it heats up and spreads...more or less. There are a couple ways to do it. One of which is to turn on your comp...get it under load for about 10 minutes...and pull it apart right after turnig it off...the pad will be suffciently thin to take it apart...much thinner than it would be if you tried other methods...or you could just use a razor blade to get most of it off, then 90% rubbing alcohol and coffee filters.
(if you don;t have 91%, 70% works fine..it jus takes a but more work)
