If I accidentally touch the cpu contacts, is it possible just to use a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol to clean it?
I don't have personal experience of this, but I have heard these things are a lot more tough than people think, I heard of a dude dropping his on the floor, with those contacts down and they were fine afterwards.
it was just a little touch and couldn't see any finger grease or anything. but would it be safer to swab it lightly with a little alochol? thanks for your previous response, btw. i'm a collector and ocd. i try to keep everything i own in perfect condition.
Definitely listen to Radox here, he knows what he's doing, you can tell from his builds.
just checked and was amazeballs
It's no big deal. It will be fine, no need to start wiping the contact points with anything. I am assuming this is Intel as you mentioned the pins Are on the motherboard so even less of an issue.
