i have 70% so i have to i guess get as high % as i can.
I didnt understand what you said on end of page one john but what i did was just force all the thermal paste to the opposite end of where i opened the package and then folded it a few times and put it in small ziplock bag and put in fridgerater. Think that will be fine? And ill get the alchohal tomorrow and use the thermal paste.

Should be fine if it is the same consistency as it was when you opened it.

I'm not sure I understand why your hsf is off center, but it sounds like you tightened each screw all the way individually? It's good to screw each one a lil and rotate until they are in. That helps you to avoid bends and other things to un level the hs.

yes that will do but just make sure the paste is cramped together, cause what you want to do is make sure that the 'particles' seperate as slowly as possible, so keep it tight and on the bottom, and pointing down.

You should be fine with 70% isopropyl alcohol. It just has more water in it, so give it more time to dry off when you wipe off the paste.

use coffee filters, they work really good. don't use cotton swabs though cause they'll leave some stuff behind prolly. i was gonna say that 70% works fine, cause i used it on mine, but i see that you have a higher % now so that doesn't really matter. but yeah, get some coffee filters.
