When I was installing the CPU fan onto my i7 2600K, I put WAY too much thermal grease and it kinda seeped EVERYWHERE. It was on my CPU, under my CPU, on my motherboard. I spent more than an hour cleaning that junk up and I noticed that my CPU didn't look the same on the back and my mobo's pins were a little whack and there was some residue of cottenswabs and tissues.
I think my problem is because of the above, but it might not be. If it is, should I try to get the motherboard and CPU replaced, or is that definitely out of warranty, and also... if it is... which one should I buy?
