Quick thermal paste question.

My cpu came with thermal paste on the heatsink already and it didn't come with an extra tube or anything. Is that fine, or should I clean it off and replace it?

If I do have to replace it, I have an unopened tube from about 2 years ago, does thermal grease ever go bad or is it still fine?

do you plan on OC your CPU a lot? If not the stock thermal paste is fine.

just watch your temps during times your CPU workload is high, if you are fine with them you are good to go.
