Hey guys.....can anyone tell me what to use to clean this old grease off my gpu and surronding area.  Should I use contact cleaner, laquer thinner or?       My fan on this one card (5870) is running at 4100-4600 rpm and all my other cards are running at 2900-3200.  I figure the little bit of grease that is on this one wasn't dispersing heat properly.   Any advice would be great.  Thanks

Isopropyl, just make sure to use 99% and not the 60% they sell at the drug store.
