Do Intel stock coolers have thermal paste?

Do Intel CPUs Come With Thermal Paste? Similar to AMD, Intel’s CPU will also not include a thermal paste; unless the CPU is boxed together with a CPU cooler. That being said, their stock heatsinks do come with a pre-applied thermal paste.

Is thermal paste on stock cooler good?

The stock thermal paste won’t be an issue. The stock cooler is good enough even for slight overclock, and it’s very silent. Definitely not worth getting another paste or an aftermarket cooler if you’re not planning to push it to the maximum possible overclock (which is not that much, either).

Do CPU fans use thermal paste?

Every CPU cooler needs thermal paste, but many have it pre-applied, which simplifies the installation process. To find out if you have pre-applied paste, check the bottom of the base plate or water block of your CPU cooler that attaches to the CPU.

Is thermal paste needed for CPU?

Thermal paste, or some oily thermal interface material, is necessary because it fills in the microscopic imperfections that otherwise trap air particles between the CPU and the heatsink, preventing the CPU from properly cooling.

Can you add more thermal paste to CPU?

NO. But if you take the cooler/heatsink off later and want to re-install it, you should clean both the CPU surface and the heatsink plate with isopropyl alcohol then reapply thermal paste.
