    i5-650 - What to do if I touched the contacts?

    curtjr4

      Hello,

       

      I know exactly what you may be thinking... "Why didn't you read the manual first?", or something like that. I will accept the fact that I haven't read the manual and should have done so... so please don't get on my case about that. What I am most interested in is what I can do about it. I heard that touching the contacts is terrible because of static electricity, and something about the oils from my fingers. What can I do to reverse the damage (If it isn't permanently damaged). I heard to get rid of the oils on the contacts, I could use something like eye glass cleaner with a cloth? What would you guys recommend? I am pretty upset and hope I didn't just ruin this processor.

       

      Thanks,

      Curt.
