More about : alternate methods removing thermal compound Reply to aWildLuke JOOK-D a c 440 à CPUs January 30, 2014 3:18:06 PM Isopropyl alcohol (75-90%) and a lint-free material, such as coffee filters. But that's essentially just a separation of what the wipes are. I'm sure there are others, just throwing it in since people often have the stuff lying around.

Distilled water works, too, just enough to dampen the cloth.
