& I wanted to attach them to all of the ram chips on the front and back of my video card. The problem is my video card is quite dusty, and well I've touched the card a lot recently when I was repairing the fan on it. So the ram chips on the card have small bits of smudged dust and possibly microscopic traces of hand residue such as natural skin oil. I don't want the aluminum heatsinks I bought to just fall off or have bad contact with the chips.
Is there a clean and safe way for me to clean these ram chips prior to sticking the new heatsinks on them?
