Nope but it does come with a tube of it for you to apply yourself.
agree. 212|+ came with a tube. the only thing on the bottom of the cooler was a protective piece of tape or cellophane which you'll probably want to remove.
No not pre-applied. But it may come with some in the box? Otherwise just grab some thermal paste - it will be the cheapest part of your build... It's seriously like $2-5
