yes but stock coolers come with paste preinstalled on the base of the heat-sink. artic silver 5 is the best paste though.

yep if you look on the bottom of your hsf there should be a grey paste on it unless youve already applied it then leave it as it is lol. My e6600 came with the paste preapplied on hsf but i was using a zalman 9500 so wasnt very useful.
