As the title says ive learned my lesson with pre mixed stuff went from Thermaltake to Fesser One to Distilled Water... recently changed to a xspc 480 rad and realized ive got about a 1/2 inch spot in my CPU block behind the outlet. I plan to take it apart this weekend seams like its only 4 screws holding the block together but how should i clean the block once apart?

I just rinse mine with distilled water from the Safeway and use some paper towel to get some of the sticky stuck stuff off. If you are crazy about paper fibers in it then just rinse it again.

I learned my lesson too. quick way clean the acrylic/plexi, remove it, soak it in bleach for 10-15 mins, rinse with tap, then rinse multiple times w/ distilled. make sure its only the acrylic/plexi, don't put in the o-ring or metal parts in the bleach!
