I built my PC my self with a
Core i3 4130 recently. It turned out that I forgotten to apply thermal paste after a time so I "unbuilt" it and removed the CPU fan. There was a big round thing on my CPU. I was afraid my CPU was burnt but no, it is sticky and it doesn't stink (so thermal paste).
- Is it normal that there is already thermal paste?
- I separated them for 20 minutes, is it worth cleaning and applying new thermal paste?
