The CPU just arrived (i7 2600). I was planning on installing the stock fan, but noticed that it doesn't come with a removable sticky and I am not sure whether it has cooling paste from the factory. Can any one let me know if the stock fan indeed has pre-applied paste? I don't want to touch the area in case it does have some (and would take several days to order some, too long!).
Any help to this dumb question would be much appreciated!
