Ive accidently got some thermal paste on the green bit of the cpu, I dont know what to do, I havent tried to remove it yet. Also thermal paste it leeking down the side of the metal bit, is it meant to do this?! I dont want it to harm my cpu

dude how much did you use??? grain of rice is all you need not enough to roll anywhere even if you sat the cpu on its side. Wipe it off i'm not sure what you are waiting for.

Look up a guide on ocn for applying TIM to CPU's. Just like microman said, you only need a little bit to spread, as long as you have a nice even layer across the chips heat spreader, it's gonna work as intended.

sorry for double posting.
