Hi to all of you in here,

I'm new on this board and I need some informations very quickly.

My friend just bought a new PC that I have to build for her.

Among the components that she bought, there is the processor AMD A10-7860K Black Edition Quiet Cooler.

BUT, as this is the first PC that I have to build in my life, I would like to know if the CPU is already covered with some thermal paste or if I have to buy some paste to put it on the processor ? If the answer to the second part of my question is "yeah", so is the paste contained in the EVO's Hyper Cooler TX3 compatible with the AMD A10-7860K and its ventirad ?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Best regards from France.
