do i need alcohol?? cant i just wipe it with a tissue or a cloth?
its a relatively new thermal paste like 2 weeks old
you can use 70% alcohol or more. Anything less could have too much liquid. Also pro tip: Wait around 5 minutes for the alcohol to dry once you cleaned the top of the CPU. I suggest you buy 70% alcohol because of its versatility from cuts to cleaning and that it is cheap.

did you redo the thermal before testing?
omg why do i even need to change thermal paste after removing cooler and keeping it back , is 75-80c that hot to make the pc freeze and i have to shut it down from the case. worst thing is what if i get new thermal paste and i change it, what if it still does the same.
:( man this sucks pls try to help me

we are trying, but you keep doing your own thing and not listening, why are you asking for help if you don't listen?
