Quick question: ordered a q6600 kentsfield processor and it came with a heatsinc that had 3 stripes of thermal paste already on it do i need to add more to the processor or is it fine?

No you don't. Just clean the heatspreader of the Q6600 with isopropyl alcohol before seating the HSF.

If you ever take the heatsink off again, you will need to reapply thermal paste.
