Is that a serious remark?

I just want to know if it's poisonous.

Also, I don't have all of those fancy chemicals for cleaning, can't I just wipe the old paste off with some paper towel?

Thanks.

you need to clean it with alcohol and you want to use enough to cover from corner to corner for maximum heat dissipation

Is rubbing alcohol good enough? (stuff from the pharmacy)

Also, what is needed to be used for rubbing? Is paper towel ok?

no you don't want to cover corner to corner, using a thin line going across the middle of the cpu is the best way to go.

any isopropyl alcohol above 70% should be fine.

it should look like this when you apply it, maybe even a little less...



with the pressure from securing the hsf evenly across the cpu heatspreader the thermal compound will spread itself out evenly over the area covering the die and give you the best contact patch possible.

I thought he meant that you didn't need to use enough to cover corner to corner

So the Zalman isn't as good?

Maybe I need to go get some Tuniq.

AS5 is fine if you already have it, you won't notice a difference, especially if you use your paper towel
