Here is our Generic Thermal Paste Guide, which should help you properly apply thermal paste. Doing it right is very important to avoid overheating issue later in your computer's life cycle.

Yes, you should have applied thermal paste to the CPU. I always recommend that Posters replace the original Thermal Paste that is on the CPU being that Apple uses cheap thermal paste, and it is usually applied very poorly.
