Tell me if I ruined my new 3800+ X2

Recommended Posts

I just got it today and I was looking to see if it had a thermal pad. Which I guess it does? Anyway the gray stuff in the middle of the heatsink (which I am assumming is said thermal pad) accidentally got scrapped off slightly, very very slightly.

 

I have Arctic Silver so can I just take that other stuff that I messed up off, and put the Artic Silver on or what?

The stuff AMD puts on for paste isn't that good anyway. Scrape it off, clean it real good with alcohol and use AS5.
