    So im building a new system right, and I gotta move all thsi hardware voer to anotehr case, its a nice case, but its beat up... Oh well, one thing that really really makes me mad is this spilt coolant, I get a cloth and water, and scrub hard, some comes of some doesnt, what is a good thing to take coolant of (dried), its kind of in the metal but not really...

    Oh... yeah I was gonna say I would use 90%+ alcohol. Not sure beyond that. It's a color stain and not a residue, correct?

    Its just like a grayish stainish something, its no leftovers, I scraped msot of that off... Its just like spilling oil on concrete, and leaving it there for a day or two, looks liek that but lighter.
