or a rubbing alcohol swab. isopropyl actually should be better

no need to go and spend extra money on something that you can do with stuff from home.

just use bounty or good quality paper towel to remove the initial paste and then dab on som alcohol to dilute, make it easier to clean

rubbing alcohol can be safely used to remove the pads from memory. and i think its possible to use other kinds of ramsinks that are shorter, or just mod the ones that come with S1 by snipping away the ends to make them shorter, it shouldnt be any harder than modding a case
