I went to the only computer store I know of in my town today looking specifically for isopropyl alcohol/Rubbing alcohol, as reccommended by many articles. What I got, which the foreign lady behind the counter assured me was up for job was a tub of pink liquid called "Liquide Nettoyant".
Google isn't really helping me out here, best I can tell it's used for cleaning printer cartridges, but I couldn't see it being used for cpu's anywhere
Please can someone help me out. Anyone come across this stuff before? and is it appropriate to use on my cpu+heatsink. I'm too cautious & poor to just go for it without knowing 100% it's o.k.
Annoyingly no other info is on the label apart from the usual "Warning keep out of reach of children."
This is so frustrating, I'm dying to get my new cpu in, and you'd think a supposed computer specialist shop would know what's right from wrong...but then again. Grrrrraagh! I'm so tempted to just risk it.
Regardless, thank you both again for taking the time to try and help me out. Much appreciated.
