A few months back I replaced by Mobo, at that time I wiped out almost all of the dried up compound, maybe I shouldn't have done that but I did
Now, only a small amount remains. So, is using spirits or alcohol completely necessary? If I just wipe it off with a cloth\q-tip & apply the new compound, will it cause any problems?
My cpu is running idle @ 60C, gotta bring it down to something normal.
And btw, The actual price of the gel I mentioned is $3. I just need a decent one
