well the only thing that determined is that the machine runs with a ryzen 1600x but it did not determine if it was due to the motherboard having a problem using a better cpu/the ram having a problem using a better cpu. basically , that specific machine can run with a worse cpu currently , but why that is isn't determined.

typically , cpus don't die. it's the only part of a computer that has an incredibly high manufacturing tolerance and is basically solid state and can mostly last... well forever.

motherboards and ram however are usually made a lot crappier and have an actual shelf life. without trying the 1700x in another machine or trying better ram/motherboard in the current machine it'll be hard to diagnose what that actual issue is.

I'm a bit confused on the question. Is it "why is the TIM dried out after 2 weeks?" or "why did the CPU die?" The answers to those are, respectively, "no clue, old tube?" and "it likely didn't"

You could bump the voltage a little see if that helps the 1700

Paste was brough 2 weeks ago online from Amazon and I no the cpu died but what could cause paste to harden after 2 weeks

I tried 1700x in another machine  and it was giving same error

*extreme* heat. I'd honestly expect significant discoloration on the chip though
