yes some are dark and some are grey,you will noitce a slight gap between the pads this is normal,Dont remove them ,and dont put any other paste like arctic silver on,it will not do any good for temp wise,They run cool any way.on idle no oc you should have 24 to 31 temps depending on board used.

You can use thermal paste if your not using the included pad ,or you removed the processor and reinstalled it,I am just saying you will have no increase in performance if that is what you are after,Core 2 processors ,you do not need paste for performance in crease.other cpu's yes

PB said up there to not add any extra, it won't do any good.
The stock cooling and thermal pads will do just fine.
