Just received a new CPU and cooler, ryzen 7 1700.
The color on the thermal paste looks a bit discolored on half of its side.
Is this safe to install or should I return it?
Also, there seems to a little particle spec on the paste. Any recommendations on how best to remove it before I apply it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Return the product just becouse you dont like the color of thermal paste... thats new.
If you dont like the color, just replace for one of your taste.
