I have a few questions. One is while I was cleaning off my CPU, some alcohol might's touched it's side, as there was thermal gunk there. Is it ok? Secondly, if beeps are heard when RAM is removed, is my motherboard dead?
Yeah it was laying on newspaper, face up when I was removing the thermal paste with cotton swabs and coffee filter. A little bit of alcohol touched the sides. I did dry it off however. I do not hear anything when the mobo starts up though, unless there is no RAM.
