How to know if thermal paste is applied correctly?
I'm in the process of building a new PC. The CPU cooler I purchased came with thermal paste pre-applied. I was installing it and thought my hand may have been a shaky. Now I'm concerned the thermal paste did not apply correctly - is there any way to know this for sure? I'd imagine I cannot remove the CPU cooler at this point or I'd be forced to re-apply it anyway.
Is there any way to check or do I just have to wait and see if my CPU temp is out of control when I boot my system for the first time?
I'd greatly appreciate your advice.
