If you don't have any thermal problems, why would you reapply thermal paste...?

Always remember the 80/80 rule of project management. That is, the first 80% of the project takes 80% of the time, and the last 20% of the project takes the other 80% of the time.

you might see some lower temps, but it isn't going to help performance. not enough to be worth the effort imo.

Don't fix a problem you don't have. If it runs fine, leave it be.

Applying more thermal application can cause conduction.
