How do u remove your thermal pads or compound? ive been scratching it off with my fingernail, but this only gets the job part way done..

somthing flat like a credit card to scrape the bulk of it off, then some rubbing alchohol to get the traces off. the purer alchohol the better, though 70 % isopropyl availiable at cvs or somthing other store will do fine. do you have some as3?
