I am about to buy a Zalman Cnps 9500. My question is do I have to get artic silver 5 or will the compound that comes with the fan work just a well?

If it lowers it 5ºC, that's a major improvement. I'd definetly go for the AS5. It's cheap and will help your temperatures.

If you are spending money for a 9500, you should definitely spend another few bucks on the thermal compound (AS5).

well to answer the question, you don't have to get it, but it is worth getting.
