What is the name of the blue paste on the power supply, and does it need to be replaced?

I'd assume this is thermal putty used in lieu of thermal pads. Similar to thermal pads, there is usually no need to replace or reapply them unless their position doesn't line up with the components that need heat conduction—in this case the storage expansion module. Hope this helps!

Looks like we both wasted 75 dollars on a Microsoft money laundering scheme designed to breakdown and not be capable of repair.
