You may also want to consider reapplying thermal paste if you find your CPU temperatures are climbing.
Is too much thermal paste bad?
Putting too much paste on a socket generally won’t hurt thermal performance, because the act of tightening down the cooler squeezes out the excess. Too little paste is bad, but anything above the minimum threshold will have the same effect once the cooler is tightened down.
How long does thermal paste last?
What is the Shelf Life of Thermal Paste? Most manufacturers will list a shelf life on their bottles. However, the most common number is about three years if the bottle or package has not been opened.

Toothpaste is also an excellent substitute for thermal paste. Its structure decays after a few days, especially if the operating temperatures are high.
How much does it cost to replace thermal paste?
I would probably charge $30 to do it. It’s not just the total time it takes, people pay for the experience as well to get it done properly and you need to pretty much take the whole system apart to do it, unless the case is very easy to work with. To just buy a tube of thermal paste is about $5.
Does changing thermal paste Make a Difference?
Short answer, yes. Thermal pastes vary in composition, cooling effectiveness, viscosity and price, so you’ll want to determine what kind of machine you’re building and how desperately you want to shave off a few more degrees.
How do I know if I put enough thermal paste?
Premium Member. The more viscous and thicker the paste, the more paste you need. The less viscous and thinner the paste, the less paste you need. MX-2 is fairly thin paste so you don’t need to apply as much.
