I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what the correct solution I can use to clean the top of my CPU and heatsink? I have an AMD processor and I went to the AMD website and it said to use alcohol to clean it off. I'm guessing that rubbing alcohol is what they're talking about. I just have a question about using rubbing alcohol to clean it off. Isn't that flammable? or doesn't that matter because I have to put thermal paste over the CPU die anyways?
why don't you go to the local pharmacy and ask for that damn thing which had some 98% alcohol. ( I forgot what I used when I threw the bundled cooler came with athlon and installed the Dr THERMAL EXTREME. (No actually I tried something in between these two)) U get a big bottle for a couple of bucks. use that thing and wait till it evaporates.
