Cleaning Thermal Grease
ArctiClean 60ml Kit (includes 30ml ArctiClean 1 and 30ml ArctiClean 2)
ArctiClean is a two-step cleaning process that removes existing thermal grease or pads and prepares the thermal surface for a fresh application of thermal interface material. ArctiClean is a specially formulated product to remove TIM from heatsinks and electronics.
Unique 2-Step Process
ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover quickly emulsifies and dissolves the existing thermal grease or pad from the CPU and/or heatsink so that it can easily be removed with a clean cloth or paper towel. A few drops of ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier and some gentle wiping then removes the remaining residue and inhibits flash corrosion on copper or aluminum.
ArctiClean 1 Thermal Material Remover
ArctiClean 1 uses a proprietary combination of non-toxic biodegradable solvents to emulsify thermal greases or thermal pads. The citrus and soy based solvents in ArctiClean 1 match or exceed many hazardous and volatile solvents such as fluorinated and chlorinated organic solvents, acetone, MEK (methyl ethyl ketone), mineral spirits, isopropyl alcohol, and toluene.
ArctiClean 2 Thermal Surface Purifier
The cationic surfactants in ArctiClean 2 remove any residue left by the ArctiClean 1 leaving a pristine surface for the application of a new thermal interface material. It also incorporates advanced flash corrosion inhibitors that minimize the corrosion layer on copper and aluminum allowing for more intimate contact between the thermal interface material and the heatsink.
Using ArctiClean 2 With Other Solvents
Most solvents and cleaning products leave residue on the CPU and heatsink that negatively affects the performance of any subsequently applied thermal interface material. ArctiClean 1 Thermal Surface Purifier removes the residue of citrus or petroleum based cleaners and inhibits flash corrosion on a copper or aluminum heatsink.

Replacement GPU heatsink
I had to trim each of the 99 pins on the heatsink by 0.5cm, so it fitted under the DVD drive!
This larger heatsink replaces the fan+heatsink combination that the original Xbox shipped with. I used thermal tape to attach the heatsink to the GPU, which worked well and was clean and hassle free. The GPU operating temperature only increased by 1°C, which was better than I had hoped for.
At the same time I put some new thermal grease under the main CPU heatsink, which lowered its operating temperature.
