Yeah, I couldn't spray CPUs like the socket 462's, had to wet a q-tip or something and then do it that way

As long as I use Mx-2, cleaning thermal paste is as simple as grabbing a paper towel.

I have the ArctiClean cleaning liquids, partly because they were on sale for $4 for both bottles. I have used iso before too, and they do the exact same thing, but the ArctiClean smells good :).

Iso 99% or 70% if I have them available, or my Bacardi 151 if I can't find them.
And I have a few Cloths from my Oakleys that are ultra fine and do the job rather well (And can be washed and re-used!).

Cleans it every time....if ya know...I don't drop the CPU and kill it in the process!
