Thermal Compound-CPU&GPU

Specs: N/A
I am trying to fix my Xbox 360 from the 3 red rings. I have fixed it before but it only lasted a week but that was because I used the wrong thermal compound. Didn't know it until I had already bought a new one, anyways this one broke also BUT when I opened it and got to the CPU and GPU the Thermal compund that was on there was every where around the CPU and the GPU. I got it off the best I could with out doing damage but there was still some, didn't think much about it and I continued on using Dynex Silver Thermal Compound. It came out white so I already had the feeling it wasn't going to work but I tried any ways with no avail. So this time I got Artic Silver 5 but as I was cleaning off the old stuff I noticed the old original thermal compound again on the surrounding circuits things that I hadn't gotten off. So I guess my question is will the old thermal compound that is on the circuits things effect the whole system working or not at all??? What can I do to get it off?? I already tried using 70% Isopropyl Alcohol with cotton swabs.

Sorry about the lengthy explanation but I wanted to include all info.
