I was setting up my processor on my mobo and it was a little hard for me setting the cooler on top if the processor, it is my first build , i think i over-pressed the cooler on my processor somehow or tightened it hardly and the thermal paste got squeezed a little bit out of one side of the processor , as i just mentioned setting my cooler was hard for me and it took like 30m to 1h to fix it on top , and installing the motherboard in the case was even more pain trying to figure out where are the nails to screw my mobo , so if there anything i can do without removing my mobo out of the pc case and just by removing the cooler, or should i leave it , i mean its not that big but if the paste gets liquefied by temperature then that will cause problems, thanks in advance
