Hello, today was my first time building a computer. I didnt have thermal compound so I walked over to some random store where some guy sold me this thermal compound for a dollar. When I applied it, it was white. I've seen alot of silver ones but today was the first time Ive seen a white one. Is this normal? And when I was applying it I accidentally added too much and it went all the way down to the pins can I fix this?
there are white ones but they are cheap and won't be too good with your temps and i would recomend cleaning that paste off very carefully bacause when thermal paste heats up it expands and can warp your board or pins
hope this hels Skarin
