Hello, I'm Mitchell and recently I made my very first computer. And after building my computer I learned I needed to flash the Mobo bios since I had a Ivy bridge Cpu. So, later through out the week I'm thinking of going to buy a simple Sandy bridge Cpu so I can flash the Mobo. The question is do I need to reapply thermal paste on the Ivy bridge Cpu after I install it back into the Mobo?

I would clean off the old and reapply. It wont hurt.

Yes, anytime the fan & heatsink are removed you need to reapply the thermal paste.
