    Ryzen 5 1600 Wraith Spire Thermal Paste Problem


      Hi friends.
      I'm using Ryzen 5 1600 with its stock cooler.
      It works for 24 days without a problem. Gets 1131 point at Cinebench. Idle temperature is 30-33 degrees celcius etc.
      But i have a concern about thermal paste of the cooler. I installed and i realized that the paste overflowed from all four sides on the CPU. (Upper halfs of the lid from 4 sides have overflowed thermal paste.)
      CPU pins didn't have a contact with paste.
      So will the overflowed paste leak to the pins over time or dry out ? Will i have problems over time?


      It's a fault of AMD! They put a lot of thermal paste unfortunately.
