Almost anything could go wrong when you "clean" a CPU. Did you use soap and water or just a wire brush? I think you need "on site" help for a more knowledgeable friend or a repair shop.

Good Luck
I used Dust off air to it. and then put the compound on it. So i didn't use soap and water or a wire brush.
