Hello everybody
I just built a new pc using
Asus rampage 4 gene mobo
Core i7 3820
& hyper 212 evo

I made a mistake by adding little too much thermal compound that came with the hyper 212 cooler
About 2-3 drops came down to the right side of motherboard cpu socket
I turned on my new pc & everything works, I even installed windows, everything working. But i am scared to death if anything happens in future.

Just please check the picture & tell if it will be a problem or not

It is just messy won't cause any performance issues or anything, why not clean it up?

98 or 99% rubbing alcohol works best at removing thermal compound

cotton balls and 99% alcohol, alcohol is safe for electronics and evaporates quickly as well as cleans well. Cotton balls help soak up thermal paste. Dont worry so much. It'll be fine
