Touched the thermal paste on intel stock cooler

So i accedentaly touched the intel stock cooler’s thermal paste, i put some back on but some thermal paste stayed on my hand. So i had to wash off, i have now installed the cooler, cpu and ram. Will this affect my cpu’s build? (Building for friend btw) yes i can buy new thermal paste if i have to.

It should still spread depending on the amount that was removed. Just see if the temps are within reason.

 

Use something like hwmonitor.
