Hi,

So, I have this Ryzen 5800x that has been sitting in my room for months now (yes I know, you can hate me for having a valuable product and not even using it) and there is some thermal paste on one of the corners underneath the CPU, between 5-6 pins.

Now, I don't have the tools or "materials" tiny enough to like clean between those pins so...

What is the best approach here? Does it even matter?
 
If it offends your OCD, a soft bristle tooth brush and isopropyl alcohol would do it dandy.

Or just leave it be. I would, it's harmless. By far those with the most bent CPU pin problems are also those with easily offended OCD.
