Clean my CPU with perfume? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Perfume is mostly alcohol so I see no reason why not. Though I would just use rubbing alcohol.

Clean cpu`s heat spreader or heatsink:

In order of best result:
a) Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol). Damped cloth. The best in cleaning leaving no residues. Safe to electronics. Use with precautions.

b) Pure acetone - no additives. Damped cloth. Good enough cleaning, leaves the least residues although it does not dissolve all chemicals.

c) dry cloth. At least it does not mix cheamicals making a bad residue that will make insulation.

Not to use: Alcohol


Clean cpu pin side:

a) Isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol). Damped cloth. Use with precautions.

b) Pure alchohol (95% or better with no additives than water). Damped cloth. Only if there is no other chemical in the contacts, like thermal paste.

Being a good solvent isn't the only requirement for a good cleanser.

Perfumes have all sorts of crap suspended in them and may well deposit more (and less thermally conductive) stuff than they remove.

Better than perfume, but still far from ideal. Paper towel isn't clean and neither is tap water.

Well if you are going to use your computer to pickup chicks, then sure why not.

Perfume has essential oils in an alcohol base. When the alcohol evaporates, a thin film of the oils will be left behind.

Nail polish remover is usually acetone based with lanolin (wool fat) added to counteract the drying effect of the acetone on skin. Using that would also leave a thin, oily film on the surface.

It wouldn't kill you to wait until you can get some 90%+ isopropyl alcohol the next morning. Even if you have to order it or another CPU cleaning solution, it would be better to do that instead of taking a chance on ruining your CPU.
