There's probably no point using it outside a cleanroom. Dust on the glassware will wreck the purity rating otherwise.
alcohol much higher than ~ 90% is hydroscopic and will absorb humidity
from the air until it reaches the azeotriopic place where its happy.
seriously, its a heat spreader, youre gonna be spreading silicone paste
on. any old alcohol will work fine, don't use /too/ much, just dampen
the wipes with it, repeat with clean wipes til the surface is clean, air
dry in a few seconds, then apply fresh arctic silver v or whatever.
frankly, for servers, I prefer using the plain white classic thermal
silicone stuff, its less conductive, and servers usually have plenty of
air and cooling, you're not overclocking them.
