    Do I need to...?

    Do I need to remove the pads from the CPU or only from the heatsink in order to apply Arctic Silver II?If yes is it safe to use rubbing alcohol in order to clean up the CPU?
    Thx

    You want to remove the rubbery "bubblegum" that's in the middle of the heatsink base with rubbing alcohol, nothing else.
