Hey yall, first post here. Basically I picked up the pump and foolishly fingerprinted the preapplied thermal paste. Noob mistake I guess. Most of it is actually still on there, so I was wondering if it was fine to leave it. See attached photo:


Thanks for the help!

You can keep it, but there will be slightly uneven heat distribution.Hopefully, when you press it down, the thermal paste will spread over the finger prints. If you want to be safe, you can just buy thermal paste for like $5. You can go to a local computer store or something.

I’ll probably just hope for it to spread out but if my temps are off I’ll take it apart and reapply.
