Hi guys, thinking of buying a new cooler as my e6600 temps are a little too high for my liking, was just wondering what is the best way to remove the thermal gel from the cpu from the stock cooler.

Thanks

Welcome to the forums!

I've always done the following:

-Rub off as much as possible using tissue paper
-Dip some tissue paper into some white spirit and rub the rest off
-Keep rubbing until the CPU heatspreader is shiny and clean.

A lot of people recommend using isopropyl alcohol.
