Heatsink scratched = Problem?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I'm building a new computer and I'm ganna use Arctic Silver thermal stuff for the processor and when I recieved my processor Athlon 64 3700+ the heatsink has like a pretty big scratch/chunk missing on it, but not where the Athlon Manufacturer thermal paste is. Basically the scratch isn't where the processor will touch the heatsink or where i need to apply Arctic Silver. This won't cause any overheating will it?

I went ahead and used it anyways and it seems to be working fine. After running the computer for like 2 hours straight with windows XP installation it was at 35 degrees C.
