I spilled a bit of Tuniq Tx-2 (non conductive it says) on my motherboard around the pins for the cpu fan. i cleaned it up the best i could but there is a small smudge that will not budge. will it cause any problems?

if it is,as advertised,non conductive you have nothing to worry about. a qtip and isopropanol should clean it up.

Use a hair dryer (but not on the hot) for drying it.
