Cleaning a processor

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Richard Bailey, Aug 12, 2004.

  1. I had to RMA a mb back so I'll have to reinstall the processor (barton
    2500+) when it gets back. What's the best way to clean the old heat sink
    goop off with out damaging the processor? This was the stock (new) heat sink
    plus a little arctic silver.

    Thanks

    I don't know the properties of AS, but I usually just wipe the thermal
    paste off with a rag. If the cpu is real dirty, I wash it with the dishes
    (sink, not dishwasher)
