i touched intel stock cooler thermal paste

 Share

While building my new pc I accidently touched intel stock cooler thermal paste. And I have realized it after completing whole rig. How bad its gonna be for cpu cooling.

 

Should I remove it and reapply the paste.

Could we see a photo of the cooler with the missing paste? Thanks.

Probably won't be affected at all unless it was completely smeared off.

 /agree with W-L

 

If all that was removed from the stock cooler thermal compound was that little smudge on your hand I wouldn't worry about it.  There should plenty left on there to get the job done.

Good to hear that because I had already installed everything inside case and while closing my case I notice wet thing on my hand. Things never went wrong like this because I am not making pc for the first time, I dont know where was my mind this time.
