I put my fingers on the back of the cpu while lapping. Can I clean it up with alcohol or should I just not worry about it?

CPU is e8400. +rep to the answerer. Ty.

I've had my fingers on a CPU before and it has not caused any problems.

You can use alcohol on it, and then wipe it off normally and it'll be fine.

You have to do that when you BSEL mod, so there's no harm.

don't worry about it, you can clean it if you want, it will not make a difference.

Always remember to wash your hands to remove the oils off your skin. What are you doing playing transformers? Megatron will lose out....j/p

As a side note:
You will be surprised what a box of latex gloves will do for you.
