Hi,

Just wanted to know if it was safe to clean the thermal compound off of my Q6600 using regular household wipes. :sol:

What kind of wipes? You probably can as long as they are no lint and won't leave residue behind.

You know, regular household antibacterial multi-surface wipes and yes of course, I will leave it for a good few hours to dry.

You can but (and I'm not trying to be a jackass here) is it that much of a hassle to get a bottle of rubbing alcohol and coffee filters usually drug stores sell both things pretty cheap. a bottle of RA is a 1.09 and coffee filters aren't much more usually 1.99-2.99.
