Where on your motherboard? Hopefully it is not in the CPU socket. That is a pita to clean up.

You want to use isoproponol to clean it off.

Use a Q-Tip and clean as much as you can off

Then use some 99% proof isoprophyl alcohol (Rubbing alcohol) and dip the q-tip in it and clean it off as well as you can, then let the board dry for 20 minutes
