Cleaning thermal paste off CPU

  teepee33 14:48 25 Sep 2003

what household stuff is safe to use to get rid of old gunk on my CPU? I was considering using isoproyl alhohol spray. Is this safe?

personally i wouldnt put anything other than heat paste on my processor . i always just carefully scrape off with a piece of paper .

IPA is safe as is Ronsonol lighter petrol. Both are 100% volatile and leave no residue. The greasy base of heatsink compound is slightly more soluble in petrol than IPA so that will get it off quicker.

Don't use motor fuel.
