Hey guys I just got a cooler master v8 and on the thermal pad there are 3 little dents right next to each other. They are very small but they are definitely visible to the naked eye. I was just wondering if this could affect the cooling ability of the cooler or not? Thanks!

should be smooth

but will it majorly effect the cooling?

if they are tiny probably not as the thermal paste will fill them in

depends how much of a pain it is to rma it but personally i would fit it
