Make sure you cleaned your CPU cooler base well, and your CPU top too. Try not to get too much alcohol on your computer components, because the alcohol still contains water. If it does not contain water the bottle would say 100% Isopropyl Alcohol, which I never seemed to be able to find.
Make sure no dust is on any surfaces that could "cook" to very high temperatures. Make sure your CPU cooler faces the right way, so if the fan was placed perpendicular to the CPU, the exhaust should face towards the back of the case.
