You may well have damaged motherboard . I have to say that it was very foolish to restart your PC after finding the poor condition . But it is an expensive lesson you have learnt . I would purchase a cheap motherboard to use as a test bed , and don't use a thermal pad , use a good quality thermal paste . You will find plenty of videos on you tube on how to do this correctly .
