Just clean it off and reapply the thermal paste. You don't want it spread all over the back of the chip but only a very thin layer across the contact pad .

If it was the thick tape type that usually comes with a new proccessor/heatsink , then I suggest that you very carefully scrape it all off and then replace it with a light coating of thermal paste..

Thermal paste can be readily purchased at any computer supply shop for a dollar or so.

I'm confused. Did he put the processor in upside down the clipped the fan on???

I thought getting thermal compound on the pins started the apocolpyse, but who am i to speak.
