I would use a cloth instead of a q-tips because the lint do get stuck in the crevices near the chipset. Use cloth wipes that is lint free.

P.S. If I were you, I would not ejaculate on the cpu because the thermal paste for the cpu is different than the one for the chipset. I use Artic Silver 5 for the CPU and a non conductive ceramic thermal paste for the chipset.
