The reason you want to use a higher concentration, as said previously, is because if you use 70% the other 30% is water. The higher concentrations will just evaporate much quicker. 91% is obtainable at a hardware store, but good luck finding 99%.

Thank you, so anything over 90% is good to use?

Well yeah, I mean distilled water is even good to use, it's just about drying it out and how long that's gonna take. The less water on that final wash, the better, as I see it.

I think the conclusions from this whole discussion is for this procedure:

Tap water contains contaminants and should be avoided if possible.

Distilled water a better choice.

Heating the distilled water could wash out more and break the sugar apart better. Someone recommended against heating too much to avoid warping. Warm to slightly over warm should be fine.

Alcohol 70% contains 30% water, and will dry out faster than distilled water. Use alcohol for a final wash. (Or for all washes)

90% alcohol will dry even faster than 70%.

99% alcohol will dry the fastest, but it's hard to find anything over 91% brick and mortar, at least where I'm from.

***Do not attempt to heat alcohol unless you really know what you're doing. 1-you'll evaporate all the alcohol content and be left with water and/or 2- You will be on fire Ricky Bobby! ***


P.S. I can't wait to hear OP come back and tell us he fixed his rig.

Yeah. No need to heat the IPA (isopropyl alcohol); it will evaporate fast enough on its own if you leave it out in air and blow gently on it with some compressed air.

I have everything assembled and was able to give it another go. The jury is in.

I wish I had better news but unfortunately there is still no POST and I am still hearing the 7 beeps of death indicating "CPU failure"

This is the point in movies where the good guy refuses to stop performing CPR on the other good guy. Someone finally pulls the him off and says "he's gone".

I'm sorry to say everyone...she's gone.

Awwww sorry to hear bro :/. I'd be devastated to lose my MBA, so I can somewhat imagine that. Don't feel defeated though. You put such a great deal of effort into this and if you decide to sell, you can tell the buyer the board is clean smile.gif.
