What do you guys use to remove and apply artic silver 3? I want to get the right items to clean the cpu,gpu,heatsinks off then apply some AS3.

Alcohol is best to clean cuz it drys fast. To apply AS3, an old credit card will do nicely. Just make sure you have a dot of it on the cpu's core.

This should help you out:http://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_silver_instructions.htm

I just redid my Athlon 1100. I used alcohol pads to clean it up. I used a plastic card to scrap of the silicon tape. I used silicon past heatsink compound, similar to arctic silver. I had a whole tube I got at work for free. My temps went from 44/19 to 37/19 with normal use, no folding.
