Used to use 70% and now 90% little better but it is almost worth it to get the AS stuff. If you change heatsinks or chips often?

I used a dry Bounty napkin to clean off the TIM that comes with the Tuniq Tower when I upgraded to the e8400 from the e2180. When I was done, I didn't understand why isopropyl alcohol was needed. It took me just a couple of minutes, and the e2180 looks like new.

Wow, how long was the HSF installed? It sounds like the paste turned to cement and practically needed to be chiseled off!

I dont really blame him. 2500 grit on a lapped processor isnt going to hurt it any. It would get out all the old AS5 thats for sure, and touch up the shine a bit while he's at it.

I am wondering if isopropyl alcohol is bad on a motherboard PCB or on the green part of the GPU core.
