I've decided that a few Â£Â£Â£ more on decent compound like AC5 is worth it compared to the generic stuff I've been using.
1) However, I am undecided on buying paste remover. There's a lot of debate on the internet about what's best and whether isopropyl alcohol is fine or if a dedicated paste remover is best. Therefore I wanted to put t to the CD Freaks massive: I've previously always used mineralised meths - I'm not overly keen on this due to the fact that it has minerals in it. I take it therefore that something else would be better. And so, the question is:
Isopropyl vs a pricey cleaner like Arcticlean.
Is isopropyl alcohol enough? If so, where would such a thing be bought? I live in the UK and not the States - a lot of US forums have said that any old 'drug store' ('pharmacy' to us Brits) would have it - I'll check there, but failing that, where else? What is the isopropyl used for medically speaking BTW? Just sterilising? I'm also only after the 99% stuff as opposed to the 70% (and 30% HÂ²O) stuff you can get. What kinda price am I looking at compared to Arcticlean?
2) Also, when I get the AC5, is it a good idea to clean the recently applied generic paste (this) off my CPU and apply some AC5 or just use it when paste is needed?
