  1. yes there is thermal paste on the fan but both the fan and the paste is cheap stuff. if you want to OC you'd want a new fan and thermal paste.
  2. Thermal paste is not pre-applied to the CPU but to the bottom of the stock heatsink that is included. If you were planning to get a different heatsink then you will need to buy some thermal compound.
