heat-sink, I use 98% pure Isopropyl Alcohol or you can use a kit like this, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835100010
Do not use any type of petroleum based products or things like nail varnish remover. This is the TIM I sue, electrically non conductive. > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835186038

turn off the power and take Anti Static Measures.
