i notice the other day when cleaning my rig that the cpu thermal paste doesnt look like its effective anymore. the paste is very dried out and old looking. is it normal to have to reapply paste and if yes do you just put it on top of the old paste ?

Make sure you don't put too much or it will not be effective.

the only down side of using more thermal paste is if the paste is conductor you can fry your cpu or motherboard.
