I have an old computer that I plan on replacing. In the meantime it has been overheating and shutting down. A couple months ago I put in a new cup fan however this week I realized I stupidly forgot to remove/replace the old thermal paste.

The fan came with pre applied paste and that came off easily with 70% isopropyl alcohol though it look like it hadn't been used possibly creating air bubbles. The old paste has been much more difficult to remove. Would 90% alcohol be better or possibly something different? Working on attaching a picture, thank you.
