Corsair H50 thermal paste on CPU socket


Recommended Posts


I recently installed an H50 cooler using the stock thermal paste on an i7 computer. Becouse of the size of the thermal paste pad on the water block I ended up with some of it on the cpu socket itself around the edges of the CPU. The computer seems to be staying steady at 30C. Could the thermal paste on the sides of the CPU cause issues down the road or is this a typical install? Sorry if this is a dumb question just not used to seeing so much thermal paste.
