socket 775 and E8400 cpu

  sleepy01 13:05 13 May 08

Hi, i'll soon be connecting an E8400 processor onto an Asus motherboard. I'd like some advice on whether i should use thermal paste on this, or is it not really necessary on a core 2 duo?.
Also I was told that the stock heatsink has some already applied, can anyone verify this?
As always your help/advice much appreciated.

thermal paste should always be applied to the base of "all" CPU's.

The Intel stock heatsink has paste pre-applied.
