    Got an old cpu heatsink, wanting to clean it up, how do you get it off easily?

    i use nail varnish remover

    Cleaning alcohol is what i'd use.

    Something like this: maplin.co.uk/mod…994
    But don't get that one, you won't need that much.

    angle grinder

    lol
    :-D

    I second IPA - oldmanhouse's suggestion. Search for item 390067754553 or 380141734722 on eBay: £3.25 to 3.45 for 125 to 250ml, which is 99%+ pure.

    It's what I use.

    P.S. Something more 'specialist', like Akasa TIM clean will also do

    Used nail varnish remover too

    nail varnish remover is a lot cheaper and works a treat

    I bought some akasa stuff, smells like lemon, it's just a degreaser you need
