Does AMD CPU's Come with Thermal Paste?

So i recently bought the AMD FX 8320E and wondering if it comes with thermal paste. I heard that it is pre-applied to the standard fan in the box and i dont know if this is true. Also if so should i buy a aftermarket paste anyway because of the quality also i am going to use the standard fan in the box because of budget reasons. thank you.

    take a quick look at the fan and you will have your answer.it will be easy to see if it does,or does not,have paste preapplied.its been my experience that the paste is indeed preapplied. there is little or no real difference between pastes so i would use what it comes with.

    ok thanks for the help man :)
  3. The cooler and thermal compound that comes with it should get the job done for stock speeds just kinda loud.
