Volcano7 thermal pad vs Arctic III

Postby steve6387 » Tue Jul 09, 2002 4:10 am

I need to RMA my mobo, so I'm going to use Arctic III on my XP 1900+ rather than the black thermal pad thingie that came with the volcano7.
Will some rubbing alcohol remove this black pad? I didn't examine it as closely as I could have before the original install. I read you CANNOT use both, so I'm looking to get an idea of what to expect when I try to clean it off/remove it.

Rubbing alcohol (find the purest stuff you can), or acetone (nail polish remover, just be sure to do a final cleaning with alcohol) should work. You may have to do some scraping on the hs to get the thermal pad off. HTH! :)
