Man this sucks!

I keep on advising people NOT to take the CPU out the socket unless you're changing the CPU!! or some other drastic circumstance!

This will reduce the chance of things like this happening, it could have been even worse you could've bent a pin on the CPU!

You can clean the paste from the top of the cpu without having to remove it from the socket, some cotton buds or cotton wool with some Thermal Imaging Paste Remover, like rubbing alcohol, changing a heat sync shouldn't again involve the removal of the CPU,

Reduce the exposure to risk....

take care in the future...

Next time I'd advise not to remove the CPU unless you absolutely have to, which you don't when cleaning off old TIM, just be careful with the amount of alcohol you add to your Q-Tip. Reasons being is because when you're removing your CPU, there's always the chance when cleaning it that things like what just happened to you will happen, and you may end up bending some pins.

You don't need to use a blow dryer. Alcohol evaporates relatively quickly.

Let all the components that you are using liquid on air dry for at least 24 hours in a dry warm place. This usually does it for things like keyboards after washing them in the sink. I would maybe even do both (hair dryer, let it sit for a few hours, hair dryer again). The great thing about higher alcohol content liquids is that they will evaperate pretty quickly. The longer you let it air dry the safer you'll be biggrin.gif
