When I was installing my cpu cooler, one of the screws popped out of its position, putting pressure on one side of the cpu/motherboard and producing a small cracking sound. It took me several attempts to finally installing the cpu cooler because that screw just didn't go in, and the thermal paste ended up being a little visible on one side of the cpu.
When I turned on the pc for the first time it worked perfectly, showing cpu temperatures just below 30 °C (BIOS).
The only thing I can guess is that I have to change the thermal paste, but I'm scared of messing up with the cooler again.

Parts used:
B450 Tomahawk
AMD 2600X and stock cooler
