    Hi Everyone,

    I have to replace a noisy NorthBridge chipset fan from my mobo (Abit I-C7).

    Question is ... what's the best way to clean off the residual thermal tape
    left on the chipset itself ? I don't want to damage the chipset if
    possible.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Wayne (BigGuy2004)

    Try searching for heatsink remover in Yahoo. A razor blade and then nail
    polish remover and a soft cloth seems quite popular!
