    Oh...I thought it was Casheti's.

    But why does it say Cooler Master Wave Master as his case in his Sys. Specs?

    Belt sander and hydrocolric acid should do the trick:
    Disclaimer: This was a joke anyone dumb enough to use a belt sander and hydrocloric acid should not be allowed near a computer.



    go to automotive store get some 3m tape glue remover or acroslove it is also used to remove oil from primered surfaces and will not harm aluminum

    just get some car wax, rub it in, wait to it gets hazy, and buff it off...

    wax on...wax off...

    Pee over it. Peeing actually disinfects anything, I bet it cleans things too.

    And perhaps that monitor cleaning spray thing works. I used to spray it on anything and it worked quite well. It was made by something called niceday. Something like this

    So many different opinions, which is the safest, and which is guaranteed to work?

    I say use the mag cleaner or rubbing alcohol. I'm an engineer, trust me - I used to work with heavy gauge aluminium for a living.

    And as for the comment about using belt sanders and acid near a computer... sometimes you just need to get that savage. What's wrong with attacking a stripped aluminium case with aluminium brightener?

    I'll join the car wax/polish club myself. 'Mer' car wax cleans and buffs every surface I've ever come across perfectly.

    But... whatever you use, test it on a small out of sight section first!

    I'll see how well the warm soapy water goes :D After that, if it doesn't work, THEN comes the wax.
