all remember times when a thermal interface pad refused to be neatly removed or
when some baked on thermal paste wouldn't come completely up. Aside from
wanting your rig neat and trim there is always the issue of damaging the

machined to be as flush a surface as possible. Doing the 'razor blade'
thing to get stubborn pieces of TIM off is far from recommended. Enter
