    Put on Heatsink without New Thermal Paste

    I recently had to take off my CPU heatsink to check about thermal paste on the CPU pins, turns out that there wasn't any. Since the process took no more than 15 minutes, was it necessary to reapply the thermal paste. Also this is a new build so the paste was applied a few days ago.
