Just use one or the other
I've had a few different full cover clocks, never seen one yet that only uses all pads or all paste, usually paste on the core itself & pads on the vrms, depends on the block type whether there is paste or pads on the memory.
The block for the OP uses paste on the core & pads everywhere else.
