The thermal paste is Artic Silver 5 and the cleaning solution is called ArticClean. I will also try two different methods using just a dot of thermal paste and not spreading it and then I will use the instructions from the makers of Arctic Silver 5 by applying a single line down the center.
I am including a link to Amazon.com with my affiliate tag. If you really do purchase this from amazon, please use my link so I can receive a small portion of the sale. It is no extra cost to you but it does help me out. If you choose to go with something else please add the tag: &tag=johnnythege07-20 to the end of the url of the product. Thanks!
