Best alcohol for CPU cleaning?

Hello everyone :)

I'm putting a new heatsink on my CPU and need to know what would be better to clean it with. I have my coffee filters and I just need to know whether my rubbing alcohol (95%) or isopropanol alcohol (99%) would be best.

Thanks, I appreciate the advice.

    It doesn't really matter either 95 or 99 percent rubbing alcohol will work. I usually go with 99 percent but like I said both will work fine.
