No. Sorry for not making it clear with my rambling... I first put the paste on that came with the Cooler Master CPU cooler, then (since I put it on too early) I accidentally touched it while putting the metal part for the cooler on the back. ...And, after getting ticked-off at myself for not using my head, I watched a video on installing it, where (they) said to not use the thermal paste that came with the cooler, but to use the Arctic Silver. I wiped away the thermal paste that I first put on.

And here I was thinking I'd have to return the Arctic Silver paste.

Yes, yes, you're right. But I made that post while I was at work and didn't have the manual with me.

So it's essentially a smaller and faster SSD, & not absolutely vital, I'm assuming/hoping...?

I recall reading that... & since it was something I didn't have, I didn't think it was that important anyway (at the time).

Edit: This was after I removed the film.
