    I was wondering if it was possible/how hard to remove an individual LED from a heatsink that is attached using your Arctic Alumina Thermal Adhesive. It was a custom build using your LEDs, adhesive, and a heatsinkusa heat sink. I was wondering if it was possible later on down the line to swap out some to change the color up a bit.

    The best results have come when people have taken a razor blade and cut through the adhesive. I've done it myself with a flat head screwdriver as well, so it's definitely possible to do it just might take a little effort.

    Ok, thanks. My color is just a little white for my liking.
