I had to remove my I7 from my motherboard because it didn't function anymore. Now this I7 had already some cooling(i didn't add any of it!) paste on it when i first added it, but now since i removed it, some of it i had to clean off the motherboard.

I'm now about to add it again to a new motherboard.. do I need to add new cooling paste or is it still ok?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, you will need new thermal paste.

Add new paste, but don't over do it, Less is more, 1 drop about the size of a pice of rice, and the cooler should spread it around, And then tighten the the 4 screws in a star pattern to spread it around.
