    I am trying to get clear and so more secure before I start this mobo replacement thingy.

    1) Do I need an anti static bracelet? I mean, really.

    2) Can I remove the old thermal paste with just alcohol or do I need some stupid proprietary cleaner costing waaaay 2 much which may be isopropryl anyhow?

    Do you officially (probably not)

    No, anti-static thingyamebobs. Just don't rub your shoes on the floor ! And touch the casing before starting (power out - blah blah blah)

    Yes, use whatever

    Thank-you.

    I was concerned about the, "you can't tell people that..."

    But done hundreds of times (years later still no side effects on the computer either !)
