Hi, quick question; do i need to use isopropyl alcohol to clean thermal paste off my cpu or can i just wipe it off with a dry paper towel or maybe a damp one? Thanks

Alcohol is recommended. It dries faster and leaves no residue. A dry coffee filter, rather than a paper towel, is recommended. A paper towel can leave paper fibers.
I would NOT recommend using water, since it can leave mineral residue.
