I just bought a new Phenom ll 965 x4 processor. I opened the box to see if everything was there and accidentally touched the base where the preapplied thermal paste is. I just lightly touched it and a small amount was on my finger. Should I be concerned of this before I install? Or buy some paste and try to fill in the little mark?

Welcome to the forum!

Call 911 immediately, they'll need to rush your stock AMD heatsink/fan to the hospital.

Just replace it to be on the safe side, either with Arctic Silver 5, MX-2, or OCZ Freeze.
