need help fast Thermal paste between pins LGA1155

ok guys so i dlided my 3570k and when i was done
and was going to seat it on the mobo i found some thermal paste stuck between the pins anyways i installed everything and my pc is ruining fine (typing this from my pc atm)

so here is the question should i shut down my pc right away and try to remove it but risk bending the pins or leave it as is ? Mobo is Z77 Mpower

PS: thermal paste used is Liquid Ultra on the cpu die and the IHS
the thermal paste between the pins is the one that came with the h100i shin etsu i think
and im very sorry if my english is bad

    If everything is running normal , why risk it , it will more than likely be fine.
  2. This video explains greatly on how to apply thermal paste https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnyoJtv9Cx0
    Kidding of course, but you should be fine, could make it worst by touching anything.
  3. thanks guys i think ill just leave it as im also out of thermal paste i applied the Thermal paste using the brush that was included
