I just got the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X as a gift, and in my rushed excitement I messed up the thermal paste a little. I had never dealt with the newer AMD stuff so I was unaware of the pre applied thermal paste. Some came off onto my thumb and my bed sheets when I was messing with it. First picture is what is now on my bed sheets and the second is what the thermal paste looks like now.

Should I redo the thermal paste or is it still good to go?

I do not think you need to redo the paste because think the 2nd picture is ok but you need to redo your bedsheets :)

If you feel the need to redo the paste then just clean the cooler and cpu off and do an pea size in middle or any method.
Ok cool, just wanted to make sure there wasn't a problem. Also, I washed them right after I took the picture:tearsofjoy:
