Built my first pc and concerned about stupid thing

  at0m11c 13:09 15 Jun 2017

So I decided to build my first PC and everything went fine and I got it all working. Today I started thinking that I had plastic cover on gtx 1070 that I pulled of and that is all fine. But I did not even check if there was any plastic(or something similar) cover under or on top of the cpu, I have a ryzen 7 1700. Should i be worried because the cpu can get warm and I dont want the plastic(or something similar) if there is any to melt or something.

Do I need to remove my fan and see if the cpu got anything on it?

Yeah I know it is a stupid question maybe but this is my first time I build a PC and I dont want it to break hehe.

and I got it all working.

If there had been a plastic cover the cpu would have overheated and shut down within 10 seconds :0)

Assume You added thermal paste between cpu and heatsink cooler?

Yes the cpu came with wraith spire cooler with pre-applied thermal paste, So you think everything is fine?

As Fruit Bat /\0/\ says, you must have removed the plastic cover for it to work at all. The AMD Wraith cooler is a big step up from other coolers bundled with new CPUs but, is still not as effective as the better third party CPU coolers.

Thanks, I mean now when i think about it is almost impossible for the cpu to even fall into place into the socket if there was any plastic between.
