Can I clean off my old thermal paste with 99% 2-propanol? Tags: CPUs Thermal Compound Components Last response: December 15, 2010 11:27 AM in CPUs Share tehinternetguy December 15, 2010 10:05:20 AM Just wondering. Also, can I clean pretty much every other component with it when needed? Isn't there a chance of 2 propanol vapor, you know, exploding?
