Default CPU Paste?

My CPU Fan already has a thin layer of paste on it, should I bother putting some on the cpu or just leave whats on the CPU Fan and continue installing hardware?

Also, am I supposed to remove those little bendy things on the I/O Shield that came with my motherboard? If so how? Just bend back and forth till they come off?

dont bother removing the things on the shield unless they block one of your ports from your motherboard

dont put anymore paste on. the thinnest of layer works. actually i think the thinner the better. just leave it the way it is.
