    I tried Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra ages ago, I don't like it, it's cock to clean off the IHS and the cooler/water block.

    pure ethanol can be corrosive to some plastics. so its best to try rubbing alcohol first.

    Use Terpentine. It will take you 2 min. max. Very effective. Use small amount, barely to wet the soft cloth. I use it with my bike all the time. It dissolves everything from residual glue from stickers on the frame to degreasing components I need to clean and lubricate again. I have never had anything that it can't deal with so far. I don't believe it's gonna damage the copper base of the cooler.

    Right, can permanently blind you. Had a friend unknowingly do this, and he was unable to see for a couple of weeks. PLease do not do this.

    Just take the fans off your H100 and you will see all the dust :) My H100 acted as a great filter

    Got some blue sleeved cables. Need to do a big cable cleanup when I get my loop in.

    How about a little liquid dishwashing detergent? That stuff cuts all kinds of grease. It's what I used all the time to clean off TIM before they came up with AS Cleaner. ;)
