Long story short, I need to put some new thermal paste to a really old P3 system, but the old stuff is pretty stubborn... parts of it were literally flaking off, but most of it is stuck to the chip pretty good. 5 minutes with denatured alcohol and the heatsink got me pretty much nowhere, so I decided to give turpentine a go and it did wonders, but I'm not sure if that stuff is safe to use on a CPU (I've seen that stuff eat away plastic containers)... anyone know? Again, this for an exposed die, no IHS.
