first i would like to say thanks to everyone who has responded to my previous posts, you've been a big help!
i'm looking to buy a new heatsync, the one i have right now is adequite but LOUD. but before i pull my old one off, does anyone have any suggestions on getting off the old gunk from the termal grease? i poked around google, and found that i should use lacquer thinner? i'm kind of reluctant to go smearing something like that on my cpu....anyone have any suggestions or experience?
thanks in advance!

Just wipe it with a clean, dry cloth.
Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
