My motherboard is dead so i head to remove the whole ryzen 1700 chip and the stock cooler. i accidentally touched the finger with thermal paste on the pins. i didnt know i had thermal paste on my finger. i also dont have any cleaning stuff so i left the cpu in the same packaging as it came. i have to wait 1week for the cleaning stuff to arrive. i live in uk. also i am scared but i went 1.3k on this pc, my first ryzen build and everything is bad.


the thermal paste was the stock cooler paste. i need help please. i am scared! stressed out. might pass out if i dont get this pc up running!
