I just replaced my Gpu thermal paste
There’s some thermal paste stuck between the pins that I can’t get off easy i already plugged in the Gpu it’s working just fine
just wondering if a little thermal paste stuck between the Gpu pins is a problem?

GPU pins? im not sure im following, what gpu do you have?

But usually, if it works it works and if the thermals seem good theres nothing to worry about.
