As I have heard it, if you are installing a CPU for the first time and don't intend to OC it you should use the thermal pad that comes with...... But if you intend to OC the heck out of it, or you have take off the CPU and are reinstalling it, you shouldn't try to reuse the pad and instead use paste

Otherwise I have never heard anything about using paste if you leave your PC on 24/7
