You do need to clean the old paste off and re apply fresh yes matey. did you get an instruction manual with the cooler as it is best to follow that.

Whats under the asus part of the heatsink will need something fitted on top (like the ram does also), if you have not purchased the cooler new and dont have all the extra heatsinks then you will need to buy some before this can be fitted.
