Marks on cpu and fan

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi two days ago I reapplied the thermal paste on my cpu and noticed some marks on top of the cpu and on the fan heatsink.

 

I got a feeling i might have  tighten it too much when i first put it together and was hoping someone might be able to help me by telling me what these marks are. 

 

It has been two days and pc is running smoothly and temps are good.

I mean, you'll never actually know for certain until something happens, and it will likely be because of something else entirely.
