I recently built a i5 3570k pc,

Haven't installed my cpu cooler (hasn't come yet), only turned it on for about 10 secs to see if the pc would boot up, my cpu should be ok right?

Yes, your CPU will be fine, and if you want to run your computer, just put the stock fan on. The stock fan is perfectly fine as long as you do not overclock. Just remember when your aftermarket cooler comes in to be sure to remove the thermal paste from the chip.

You can get acetone pretty much any supermarket or grocery store for a couple of bucks, and the same for q-tips.

You really should not do that. But yes it should be fine. Did you not get a stock intel cooler?

Let me just mention that its not just any acetone, you want pure acetone, 100%. I have my girlfriend buy it for me when she goes into Sally Beauty Supply.

I did get it but i don't want to apply it to the cpu since i would then have to remove the thermal paste ill just till the h60 comes.

Ah ok well, don't stress. These CPUs have extreme safety features to avoid damage from occurring from something like this. But in future. Rather not do it...
