Seems rather odd, not being able to find isopropyl alcohol.

If you're of age, perhaps you could get the UK equivalent of Everclear. It's pretty much just pure ethanol, no added flavors, colors or preservatives.


You can use it to clean your CPU and celebrate your success!

Thermal paste
Hey guys, So I was hoping to get some clarification (as well as personal opinions) on thermal paste application. I have heard many different ways of applying thermal paste, and I am guessing they all work. The real question is, how MUCH? I just have a feeling I put on TOO much on my new...
