Default Is it safe to use alcohol on the pin side of the CPU?

I got a little AS5 on my quad. Alcohol is 80% and I'm not going to dip it.

I got a smudge of AS5 on the bottom of my cpu when I was cleaning it. Can I wipe the bottom w/ an alcohol cloth?

Yes, just make sure it's completely dried off before plugging it back in.
