About to install my CLC, It appears to have thermal paste from EVGA, Do I still need to add some Artic Silver?

Folding whatever I can :o)

I remove the Stock Thermal Past and use TF8 now.
Before I was using MX-4, I stopped using Artic Silver a few years ago if not longer now.

So would you use stock or Artic Sliver? My only two choices at this point.

No, the Stock TIM works well enough -- I'm using it on my AIO Folding Rig
 
I've stopped using Conductive TIM
 
I use MX-4 when I remove stock coolers

You do not need to replace the stock thermal paste.
