    Cleaning processors with paint thinner, mistake?


      Couple weeks ago I cleaned my xeon E5540's pins(underside) by rubbing it with a damped(paint thinner) cloth because the thermal grease dirtied it up a bit

      until now, I havent tried it up yet because the motherboard still being repaired. The result is some of the pins color seem different than the rest, Have I done a mistake?
