Yes the paste is fine you can use a hair drier to worm it a bit, it goes off better (if you like to remove it). I suggest to stay away from ivy cpu's and this is why:

You can go with sandy I7 2700K to this motherboard or with i7 3820 or i7 3930K, to the LGA 2011 motherboards having better chance to upgrading to the Feature incoming processors without changing motherboard again.
