Graphics Card Cleaning

I want to open up my (Dead) GPU and clean in up to see if it would work afterwards... :D

I would use a tilt free cloth, Iso Propyl alcohol ( i dont think that particular one was made for computers, i obtained it from my brothers medical locker, Its actually an Alcohol Pad, which is like a little piece of cloth 70% saturated with alcohol), all that and a little brush to clean the fan

So the question is...

Should i use that alcohol at all ? ( Since it is a ^Winner Medical^ commercial brand product )

Am i supposed to rub the chip itself with alcohol i mean the green silicon part of the GPU chip in order to clean it ??

Dead ( 8800gts 512 factory overclocked)
C2D E7400 2.8 stock
2 gb ddr2 800 mhz
Win Xp

Help Appreciated +)))

    What brand is it? Some of those Nvidia companies offer a lifetime warranty.
