My cooler is the hyper 212 evo v2 and my thermal paste is the thermalright liquid metal compound 

Isn't it literally on the packaging to NOT use on aluminum?

F for that heatsink. Could have been worse and make sure you get all that liquid metal cleaned up and around the socket is sealed before using it again.

Wait, so are you getting a free replacement for the cooler you screwed up?

With that much metal rolling around, I'm surprised that it didn't leak onto the socket or the surrounding area. I guess you got lucky.
