Hi, I have an i3-8100 and i mounted an aftermarket cooler on it and also apllied some thermal paste cause it didnt have any pre applied. after about 8 hours(2 hours of it the pc was on) for some reasons i removed the cooler and mounted the stock intel cooler which had thermal paste pre applied. My question is that i didnt clean the remaining thermal paste from the cpu before mounting the stock cooler, so is it ok or my cpu will get fried?
BTW currently my temps are about 35 c in idle and 55~60 c while gaming.
also i have two chassis fan one exhaust and one intake if its important.
Thanks.
