99% Isopropyl Alcohol for PC Use

6 posts in this topic

Hey;

 

Does anyone know where to get 99% Isopropyl Alcohol for removing thermal paste and cleaning cpus, gpus and pc contacts. I used to just wipe the cpu and use contact cleaner on the pc contacts, but someone made a point that contact cleaner uses also lubricant so this can affect the heat transfer to the heat sink,

 

Any locations or equivalent item?

 

Thanks;

Just use thinner or nail polish remover. Lube is a no! no! when cleaning electrical contacts ... heavier hydro-carbons. Lower the better, more like methanol or ethanol or ethyl-methyl, even petrol will do.

What if I don't want to use thinner or nail polish remover.  Where can I find isopropyl alcohol.  It has a lot of medical needs, so i'm sure its available.

I checked in ACE Hardware, one of the staff informed me that they used to sell it but due to some ministry regulation they had to remove it.

Go to boots you will find it there. They also have the ones like wipes too, where they are already soaked for easier use.
