Concerns after Installation issues and Thermal Paste Ryzen 1500x
I finally got my 1500X and it seems fine, but i have a few concerns as i made a few mistakes during installation
Basically, i put the cooler on the wrong way and contacted the CPU and noticed thermal paste hitting the sides, so i attempted to clean it off and the thermal paste was..... weird... sticky
Im hoping its non conductive because with my rubbing with a microfibre cloth and alcohol, some of it got on the edge/green part and a little on the motherboard
So, After all that, i applied some Noctua Thermal paste, installed the cooler. and i got the first 3 screws in just fine, but no matter how hard i push , the 4th screw will just not go in and i didnt want to break it.
So i left it with three screws tightened, and the cooler does not budge, and seems pretty well fastened.
Booted up, everything boots fine, runs, and temps average between 35C and 50-60C in demanding game titles , maxing around 66C during CPU Stress testing with prime95 blend.
Anyway, is there anything to worry about? or should i just leave it all alone until i get my hands on an AIO Cooler
