what about flushing it with super hot boiling water first? get rid of the majority so the brushing can be even lighter?
Im not putting anything highly conductive like water ( o_O) near a $800 CPU. One drop not 1000000% dry and you're frying that thing.

It’s not conducive? Throw that sucker back in. No need to clean. 😈

99 ISO and ultra soft brush.

That being said, like a few others and 3.0 , I managed to nuke a CPU once myself from mishandling.
Good luck,

I have a ultra fine toothbrush and this to try next I got this far with a toothpick hoping this gets the last bit.

I thought the pins were like Intel brittle and weak as straw I was wrong toothbrush worked perfectly

I'll have to order a board now to test seen a Asus board itx x570

I wonder if soaking it in 99% in a ziplock bag for a while would help with the brushing?

I think the concern is that the ISO might affect the IHS cover seal. I'd be more inclined to suggest soaking it pin side down with the ISO level coming up to the bottom of the PCB.
Ahh yes, good point !
