I am helping my girlfriend assemble her new rig right now. Got some experience, though it's been a few years (or maybe more like a decade). So I am unpacking her brand new Ryzen 7 3800x (my heart pounding like back when I was 14 years old), telling her about how crucial it is to get "that thermal paste thing" right and what do I see? Nowadays it's practically pre-installed on the cooler. Seems to be a job well done, too: Very evenly distributed, like I couldn't do any better.

Now to my question: Can I trust the paste job? I mean that 3800x was expensive as hell, so I would be somewhat disappointed if I had to remove the paste just to apply new one.
