    A picture demonstrating that you don't have a macro mode on your camera?




    Is it more thermal paste where it shouldn't be?

    You might want to annotate the photo (or provide a higher res one) if you are trying to indicate an area on the socket you are worried about.

    As it stands, the only thing that jumps out at me is "ooooo, s1156 - don't stick fingers in".

    Left side looks like a bit of damage? Or is it thermal paste?

    Clean it with hot salty water.

    Spray it directly on to the socket and surrounding area.

    That would scare me! Another forum suggests a cotton bud and rubbing alcohol if you want another alternative. It will evaporate off quicker. :)
