I have found the the AMD Athlon XP retail PIB boxed CPU's to come in a greasy to the touch plastic holder box. I wonder what this stuff is, seems to be a very invisable WD40 type feel.

Maybe its just AMD staff working up a sweat.

Erh but I am interested in what you actually cleaned when you say contacts you mean the IDE pins on the actuall HDD ?
