Hello Hristo2009,  


  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I can see that you want information on how to clean your Intel® Core™ i5-11600KF Processor.


In this case, Isopropyl alcohol wipes can be used to clean the surface of the processor. However, Intel does not provide the specific percentage of alcohol that can be used.


Also, you can check the "How to Apply or Remove Thermal Interface Material (TIM)" article.
