I've just bought a new system which had the processor and cpu cooler installed in the shop.
Unfortunately they did a poor job in attaching the cooler, so when I gave it a small push when installing the other components it came lose.
I have a artic cooling freezer pro 64, which has preapplied thermal compound. The components have never been powered up so far. Should I reapply the thermal compound, or is it still save to just remount the cpu cooler and get on with it?
