CPU cooler installation.

Ok so I was installing a cpu cooler, I had properly installed it when I realized for better cable management I should change the orientation of the cpu. I did it within seconds of installing it and simply removed it and changed the orientation, does this harm the thermal paste?

Intel core i5 stock cooler

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you talking thermal glue or paste? Glue is usually a permanent attachment and you wont be able to separate them or move it. Paste allows to to remover a heatsink down the road if necessary. If you did use a glue, you may made your changes before it had a chance to set.
