But it is distilled water and distilled water is not conductive So in theory there shouldnt be a problem.twajetmech said:No, it won't that's is 30% water and you don't want water any where near the cpu ! and use some swabs and lint free cloth (old tee shirt, cut up) remember to turn the psu off but leave it plugged in and wear an anti stat strap and remember not to touch the surface with your bare hands once the cpu is cleaned.
Do you think I could get away without using any cleaning agents and rubbing it with a dry cloth?Barry_R said:I use Goof Off applied sparingly to a paper towel to clean my CPU's and Heatsinks. You do not want this stuff to run onto your mobo so do not quirt it on the components, only on the paper towel.
Goof Off is one of the cleaning products recommended by the Arctic Silver 5 application tutorial. Just be carefull with it and it will do a great job.
Please do not use products containing distilled water. Although pure H2O is not conductive it can pick up ions or other impurities while in use and fry your PC.
