Oh and Phoenix, I'm using my g901db(European version of g9000db) with my xr7; wonderful match. I think you
will love it with the xr16.

Thanks!
The foam paint brushes is a great idea. I've been mostly using q-tips with isopropyl alcohol.
What cleaner do you use?
I'm finding IPA leaves a residue on some surfaces.

I use to use the alcohol, but like you I found it can leave a residue. I now use, don't laugh, but professor amos lol. His stuff, though over hyped and don't perform the miracles you see on tv, do have 1000 uses. It's also mild and the best all around cleaner I've come by. I even use it to remove old thermal past from cpus, heatsink etc. And it does a much better job than alcohol or the expensive dedicated thermal paste removals I've used in the past.I

Great tip Moody. I've been using the foam brushes for a while but didn't know about that cleaner. 

 

Are we talking about this:

I use foam brushes too - but with denatured alcohol.  If it leaves a residue, I don't see it.

I'm thinking I might also. Here's my A-B rig I set up last night. I will be pulling the G-9000 apart tonight for a good cleaning if the ups guy gets here at a reasonable time. Yes, that's top chef. And a cat who only likes to sit on my favorite things haha.

I've used that alcohol too, and for many jobs, it works great. But when it comes to stuff that has many years of crud built up, it leaves stuff behind. I would always have to clean multiple times to get everything. But we all have our special methods, there no right or wrong way as long as the job gets done. biggrin.gif

I will have to look into the shock stuff Matt listed.  May be a worthy experiment. ;)

Good pic.....................a continuation of Skylab and my pics from Thanksgiving.  Love the vintage iron stacked!  What are those two?  One is a Sansui...............the other?

post #10934 of 16755

Looks like a sx1980. 

post #10935 of 16755

Yeah the big Sansui and Pioneer right next to each other is so cool :D
