Should I use thermal paste on the Corsair H50-1 Water Cooler or leave it as is?

If you bought it new it comes with pre-applied thermal paste, so leave it as it is.
If you bought it used, you need to add some thermal paste.

Use the pre-installed thermal paste.

I'm building from scratch so all is new.
Which has the thermal paste already added: the Corsair H50, retail i7 920 or i7 920 OEM?
Does the retail boxed i7 920 have the cooler heatsink-fan attacthed to the CPU out-of-the-box or does it have to be assembled?

The retail i7 will come with a cooler but its not attached to the processor so ignore it and the H50 will have the thermal paste pre-applied to it.
