Hi

So for the last few days I have noticed that my stock intel cooler is making a lot of noise and want to change it.
I have another aftermarket air cooler which I have had in storage for around 16 months.
It has thermal paste already applied on it however I am just wondering as there is no protective cover on it would the paste still be ok after 15 months? its new and not been taken out the box
I could just order more paste but its going to take a few days to get and the noisy fan is concerning me. Thanks
