Ok. I guess my brains too messed up to have you guys follow. I have never removed the heatsink thus no AS is on it. I would rather not have to go out and buy/apply AS just to clean my heatsink (ok to clean it good i would have to remove it thus leaving the need for AS). Im simply trying to figure out a good way to blow the shit outta there without popin the heatsink out. I just dont trust myself enough to put as on right.
