Default Scratched Surface

I recently went about installing an NF-U12P on my new 920, and I kind of screwed up.
When I was trying to screw in the mounting brackets to the heatsink, my screwdriver slipped, causing a moderately deep scratch across the right side of the heatsink.

Would this majorly effect the performance? It's no where near the middle of the heatsink, which as far as I know, is where most of the heat transferring takes place.

I was planning to set it all up, then check the temps. If the temps were too high on stock speeds, I would probably consider lapping it. As of now, I'm highly inexperienced at lapping, so I'd rather use it as a last resort.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
