I cleaned it off now using q-tip and a dab of alcohol. I'm scared to put it back on but mobo is still good with the LEDs on it for ram check, gfx etc. Any idea?

As long as you used 91% or better Ispropyl Alcohol and it left no residue, then you should be fine.

It says 54C.

Ignore idle temps and don't go by what's in BIOS ("CPU Temp").

You need to be concerned with "Core Temp" under load.

See my guide for more information.
