You can change this preference below. they used to sell it at wal-mart, but im not sure if they do anymore, it would probably be in the automotive section. Yükleniyor... Ask a question and give support.

Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? But I don't think that you will have any issue with the performance of your CPU. A month has passed until I have the opportunity to reasemble PC and now Im looking at a dark finger print in one side of stock heatsink fan, I cleaned again Mark NAug 12, 2013, 5:21 AM You can clean fingerprints on CPU by use of product called Innospray B600.

  1. It comes in a spray can at most auto parts stores.
  2. It varies for aluminum polish, but it's doesn't cost much.

  4. I wouldn't put anything besides thermal paste on a cpu/heatsink, though, and I really doubt that its gonna affect temperature that much.

I even tried using isopropyl alcohol to remove the fingerprints and failed miserably... Dab whatever you end up using in the isopropyl alcohol and then rub the CPU clean.

Düşüncelerinizi paylaşmak için oturum açın. I had tried to use 'ketchup" before, but it takes way to long for it to remove anything from the surfaces. I usually use a sturdy paper towl. Beat that!!

I dont think it will remove stains though.

I don't actually have all of the parts for the computer yet. Now I know this to be a motherboard problem, because I have interchanged other heatsink/fans and they also are getting No Power from the motherboard. any foreign matter that ketchup introduces is also water soluble and thus VERY easy to remove. The aluminum polish may help with buffing out that rainbow affect on the metal.

It removes fingerprints quickly and effectively. But yeah you used Caps so you must be right... And can someone give me more specific details on what to use to wipe of the paste? There's other chemical brighteners for aluminum, but they tend to leave a pasty white matte finish to the metal surface..
