I bought some artic ALUMINA EPOXY because i thought that it was not dangerous at all to the chip if i applied a mem cooler to it. By accident i got some on the chip leads. I applied it to the chip using some artic alumina COMPOUND so it would be possible to remove it. I removed the heatsink after my computer would not post and i saw some epoxy in the leads and i could not get them out. Did i kill the ram or is there any other way to get out the epoxy? i tried rubbing alchlohal but that was no good.
