Um, if anyone else was not aware that the last paragraph in my post was full o' sarcasm, it was. No, I do not really recommend using Everclear on your computer parts. Basic over the counter Iso Alcohol cleans thermal paste off of a processor more than easily, anything else is overkill.

There are two different types of rubbing alcohols, one contains contaimenants, which has the blue label, and then the red one is the medical grade one, not a single contaminent in it. I would rather have a red label at 70% than a blue label bottle at 90%... And if one of you comes up and says there the exact same, then read the labels a bit closer, they are very different.
