Nope. I don't know of any manufacturer these days that disallows applying new paste.

yeah compress then spread, keep working it left right whatever way until it covers real nice. when you put the card back together make sure you squeeze that together real good and tight.

NO! don't spread the TIM!!!!!!!!!!!! I will create bubbles and not make as good of contact with the heatsink. What I do is just put a small drop in the middle and let the pressure of the HS spread it, makes for more contact between the TIM and the HS just more surface area and better heat dissipation.

Yeah don't spread the TIM just apply a pea sized dot in the middle and let it spread.
